Director’s Award

As BREEAM Director I spend a lot of time talking to a wide range of stakeholders both in the UK and Internationally. These conversations not only help to strengthen our brand and services in these markets, but I get an opportunity to hear first-hand how BREEAM is driving change around the world. Some of these individuals are senior representatives of their organisations having a global influence other are playing a very active role as long standing local assessors and advocates of BREEAM. This award is given by me personally to someone who I feel needs to be recognised for their achievements and leadership for BREEAM over the past 12 months. ⁠— Dr Shamir Ghumra, BREEAM Director
