Hannah joined CBRE in April 2015 as a Sustainability Intern from the University of Surrey. During her internship, Hannah worked with key stakeholders to develop a defined set of sustainability standards to be applied across the 41 million square feet of CBRE-managed property in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). Whilst completing her internship, Hannah conducted research on sustainability certification systems as part of her postgraduate studies. Her completed thesis was awarded the Roland Clift Prize for Environment and Sustainability. Since September 2015, Hannah has been Sustainability Coordinator for the CBRE EMEA business.
