Real estate firm Hines has appointed Michael Izzo its first carbon strategy vice-president.
Hines is “embarking on creating carbon standards for the built environment”, Peter Epping, global head of ESG, said in a statement. The firm has a mission to “drastically reduce the environmental impact of its properties, including operational and embodied carbon”.
Izzo joins a growing ESG team: Hines appointed Epping as global head of ESG in June 2021 and Daniel Chang as European head of ESG earlier this month.
New York-based Izzo was previously a vice-president for construction at Hines.
