Erik has a proven background in sustainability work from the construction and property sector and has been the driving force behind a large number of sustainability projects. In addition to his role at Skanska, he was also Acting LEED manager at the Sweden Green Building Council, with responsibility for the coordination of LEED work in Sweden.
“I want to strengthen Kungsleden’s positive energy in the community by promoting the establishment of sustainable and attractive city districts. Key issues will include reducing climate impact from operation, tenant adaptations and new construction. We will also invest in re-use and in building the circular economy,” says Erik Florman, incoming Head of Sustainability at Kungsleden.
“Kungsleden’s sustainability work is based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with a focus on the environment, diversity, business ethics, social responsibility and health. We create attractive and sustainable workplaces that inspire people, and an ambitious sustainability agenda is a success factor that is becoming increasingly important. Erik’s background in community development and certification work will be a major asset to Kungsleden now that we are strengthening our sustainability program and further reducing our climate footprint,” says Ylva Sarby Westman, Deputy CEO of Kungsleden.
Erik Florman will start at Kungsleden on 23 March 2020.
