Green Building Council Chairman joins NDY
Engineering consultancy Norman Disney & Young (NDY) has confirmed the appointment of Tony Arnel to the position of Global Director of Sustainability.
NDY CEO Ian Hopkins said he was “delighted” to announce the appointment.
“[Mr Arnel’s] role as Global Director of Sustainability will provide a great boost to NDY’s well-established sustainability offerings,” Hopkins said.
“Over the coming weeks Tony will meet the management and sustainability teams in each NDY office to assist him in the development of a comprehensive strategy.”
As well as being a founding Director and Chair of the Green Building Council of Australia, Arnel is also the former Chair of the World Green Building Council. Most recently, he was also the Victorian Building and Plumbing Industry Commissioner.
Over the past decade Arnel has been a leader of the national and international sustainability debate, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region, advocating sustainable building as a means of reducing greenhouse emissions without impacting economic growth.
In 2010, Arnel was the inaugural winner of the National Leadership in Sustainability Award from the Australian Institute of Architects and last year won the Melbourne Award for the individual who made a major contribution to the sustainability of Melbourne’s built environment.
Arnel continues to play a key role in the transformation of the Australian property market to sustainable practices and is a board member of the Sustainable Melbourne Fund.
Arnel has said he has always admired NDY’s reputation “for its engineering excellence, its breadth of talent and the company’s genuine commitment to sustainable solutions”.
“I’m looking forward to being a part of the excitement around NDY’s growing global sustainability capabilities,” he said.
