John Alker Legal and General
First, we looked at what influences people`s quality of life. We used this evidence to create a framework to show how improvements to our homes and communities can improve our quality of life. We are now looking at ways to increase the evidence base to centralize health and wellness and provide services to create overall value and accountability. The Quality of Life Foundation was founded by Professor Sadie Morgan OBE, a design champion and industry leader. She was frustrated by our inability to create homes and communities built on a large scale over the long term. She felt it was necessary to focus the debate on people, their health and well-being, and to involve both developers and the general public in the design of their homes and communities. The company is committed to setting targets that will be verified by the Science Based Targets initiative, which Alker says will be verified and published in 2023. It sets annual emission targets that the company must meet. John has also served as a board member of the World Green Building Council. Prior to joining UKGBC, John worked on sustainable homes and emissions trading for the environmental organisation WWF-UK, worked as a researcher in the House of Commons and in commercial public affairs. He serves on the Board of Directors of the Quality of Life Foundation. Among those good things is the company`s commitment to make all of its new net carbon-free housing stock operational by 2030.
Added to this challenge is the “enormous scale and diversity” of LGC housing corporations, from construction to sale to suburban construction, rental, subsequent housing, modular and affordable housing. “All homebuilders will treat nature and biodiversity in a much more meaningful way than before,” says Alker. Last year`s Environment Act will make net biodiversity gains mandatory in England from the end of 2023, obliging developers to improve biodiversity as new developments develop. Over the course of her career, she has held a position with a charity as a consultant in design research and community-led design practice, including asset mapping, meaningful engagement, and stakeholder education. She also worked for a sustainable architecture firm and a design collective as an engagement consultant and participatory researcher that included the rehabilitation of dilapidated buildings and spaces, an Eco-Build visitor center, and a renovation of cultural buildings. This appointment of LGC, which took place on 9. By joining the company in August, LGC`s commitment to protecting our planet demonstrates driving tangible and meaningful change in the various sectors in which it operates – from its commitment to net-zero carbon housing to its levelling up programme and transforming cities across the UK. To contact the journalist of this article: Lyubov Pronina in Brussels in email@example.com. Getting the right foundation and defining its green strategy is LGC`s priority right now, but when can we expect this strategy to be effective? John`s role at Legal & General aims to bring about tangible and meaningful change in a variety of sectors, from the commitment to net-zero carbon housing to the grading program. It`s no wonder, then, that Alker and his team still have a lot of work ahead of them to formulate and implement LGC`s green strategy. “His experience working together in the construction and real estate sectors to drive real improvements in environmental outcomes aligns closely with our continued commitment to delivering the societal benefits of high-quality affordable housing for all and regenerated cities.
But while Alker says these factory-built homes are important for decarbonization, he adds, “I think in a way it`s important not to get to some sort of modular silo and assume it`s all based on efficiency and low-carbon levels.” Although LGC has an operational target for carbon, it has not yet set one for embodied carbon emissions from the development process. Some local authorities have stepped in and demanded reports on embodied carbon in large-scale projects, and while Alker says we`re likely to see more, this doesn`t match actual regulation.
