Savills has appointed Sarah Brayshaw as its first climate risk and resilience consultant.
Brayshaw will be based at the firm’s Finsbury Circus office in the City of London. She will lead the development and delivery of the team’s climate physical risk service line.
Joining from Deloitte, she has more than seven years’ experience in the sustainability sector; earlier roles include working as a catastrophe risk analyst at Willis Towers Watson.
Brayshaw said: “It has never been more important for businesses to be aware of climate risk. Real estate is part of the solution and I look forward to both reducing climate change impacts, improving resilience and adapting property portfolios in order to make a meaningful impact for those in the sector.”
