Matt Sal joins from sustainability consultancy JustOne


Colliers has hired experienced sustainability consultant Matt Sal to join its dedicated ESG team.

He joins the UK-wide business from JustOne and, prior to working at the consultancy firm, was socio-economic lead at JLL. At Colliers he will work with clients to evolve their ESG strategies, working alongside the firm’s sustainability expertise within Property Management and Project & Building Consultancy.

Andy Mercer, UK Head of ESG at the Colliers said: “We’re thrilled to have Matt join the team. He brings with him experience working with a wide range of clients across the full spectrum of sustainability; in particular social value which is finally being recognised as a vitally important part of real estate strategy.

“Colliers already has a good reputation for delivering ESG solutions for clients, including offering 100% renewable energy solutions for the assets we manage, and providing energy audits and certification services. Now we can embed our social value offering with Matt’s expertise to support clients to really understand and measure the impact that their assets are having on the communities they are located within.”

Matt added: “Social value is an under-represented and often misunderstood aspect of ESG. I’m excited to be able to work with Colliers’ clients to ensure the commercial real estate sector is delivering on making a positive contribution to society.”
