GLOBAL engineering and advisory firm Cundall has promoted Madlen Jannaschk to head up its Asia Pacific ESG advisory team, in order to meet growing demand for the specialisation.
Before joining Cundall, Jannaschk has more than a decade of experience as a practicing architect and project manager and has been an endorsed One Planet Integrator, Green Star Accredited Professional and Registered Consultant for Climate Active Carbon Neutral Organisations.
“We have been seeing enormous demand for our ESG expertise. Madlen is an exceptionally experienced leader in this space, with an outstanding track record of working with clients and projects to reduce environmental impacts while improving commercial outcomes,” said Garrit Schot, partner and managing director at Cundall, Australia.
Jannaschk will lead the ESG advisory which provides strategic insights, planning and implementation pathways to the group’s clients across the Asia Pacific region, arming investors and asset and portfolio owners to address ESG concerns.
“Many of our clients have portfolios that include assets around the world. The work we are doing as a company is global, and the goals of ESG, particularly in relation to mitigating climate change, are also a global effort,” said Jannaschk.
In tandem with the promotion Cundall has also published The ESG Playbook (and why you need one) authored by Jannaschk, which is a practical guide to the fundamental principles of ESG and how they can be addressed in any organisation.
“ESG principles are no longer an add-on, they are understood as adding value for investors and asset owners when applied as an integrated and holistic approach to doing business,” said Jannaschk.
