Tereza Jelínková to lead CWK’s sustainability team in CEE region

The operation of the firm’s Sustainability and ESG teams in the CEE region will be co-ordinated by Tereza Jelínková, Associate in Cushman & Wakefield’s Czech office. She will thus expand her existing role in the Project Development Services team where she is currently responsible for the Project Management team focused on asset level projects and sustainability.

Tereza has over eight years of experience in the real estate sector and is a BREEAM In-Use Assessor. She has established the Sustainability service line in CWK’s Czech office, which provides clients with building certifications and sustainability advisory. She also co-leads the local ESG Focus Group that organizes the company’s own ESG activities. 

Tereza is experienced in managing and delivering design & build projects and her team works closely with other departments such as Property Management, Leasing and Capital Markets on the delivery of turnkey services to landlords and occupier clients.

She is also a member of the company’s EMEA Sustainability Operational Committee which is responsible for driving sustainability services, sharing best practice, knowledge, and service unification for clients across the entire EMEA region.  

Recently, the firm has announced science-based targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that are approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi): reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions across its corporate offices and operations 50% by 2030 from a 2019 base year, and engage its key clients, representing 70% of emissions at its managed properties (scope 3) to set science-based targets by 2025. In addition, by signing up to the Business Ambition for 1.5ºC campaign, the firm pledges to reach net zero emissions across its entire value chain (scopes 1, 2 and 3) by 2050.

Jonathan Hallett, Head of Central & Eastern Europe, Cushman & Wakefield: “With buildings generating a significant portion of the world’s carbon emissions, we recognize CWK plays a vital role in shaping a sustainable future for the real estate industry. We will therefore focus efforts on reducing emissions from our own operations and from the facilities we manage.”

In the CEE region, the company now expands its existing sustainability and ESG services, offering clients with comprehensive advisory. Property owners or occupiers can receive specific and individual recommendations on decreasing the environmental impact of their building, and help with their implementation.
