Amie Shuttleworth has been appointed Global Head of Sustainability by international multi-disciplinary engineer Cundall. Amie joins Cundall from Sir Robert McAlpine Ltd where she was Head of Sustainability.
Based in the Hong Kong office, Amie will focus on developing Cundall’s global sustainability strategy whilst further advancing the strengths of Cundall’s sustainability consulting services in Hong Kong, Asia Pacific and the rest of the world.
As part of her role, Amie will be developing initiatives in support of Cundall’s One Planet Living endorsement and extending its offer for clients to use the One Planet sustainability tool on projects. She will also be responsible for embedding sustainability throughout the business and its supply chain, including the implementation of a comprehensive programme of sustainability training for both graduate engineers and more experienced staff.
Recognised as one of Building Magazine’s Rising Stars of Sustainability in 2013, Amie’s experience includes the sustainability management of major projects such as the £390m Quadrant 3 development for The Crown Estate, and the development and implementation of a five-year business sustainability strategy for Sir Robert McAlpine, which included using financial metrics to track impacts in order to influence decision making. Following completion of her part-time Masters Degree in Sustainability Leadership in 2013, Amie’s passion for sustainability even took her on a sabbatical to the Charles Darwin Research Centre on the island of Santa Cruz, Galapagos, where she was responsible for designing and constructing a naturally ventilated library, whilst simultaneously working with Architects at the Princes Foundation to develop a prototype low-impact house.
Tomás Neeson, Managing Partner of Cundall said. “Amie joining Cundall is great news for the practice, and is a demonstration of our commitment to deliver sustainability, both through our business and through construction generally. Being based in Hong Kong Amie is ideally placed to bridge the globe from our renowned sustainability offering in Australia, to the Gulf and also in the UK.”
Amie says, “I’m thrilled by the opportunity of leading the sustainability strategy through the next stage of its journey. Cundall's outstanding reputation is richly deserved, not least due to the founding principles laid down in 1976, but also the sustainability know-how and its commitment to projects, people, business and leadership which resulted in it being the first consultancy to achieve the One Planet Company endorsement.”
