As the built environment sector becomes more aware of the climate crisis, Anthony Probert says we need to move past certification and ratings systems to achieving long-term sustainability through harder-hitting, site-specific, user-focused solutions
I’ve been with Bioregional since 2011, acting as a sustainability consultant for a wide variety of built environment projects at home and abroad. I create One Planet Action Plans for development projects, identifying the environmental performance a scheme should aspire to, and working with design and project teams to develop strategies and solutions to achieving this level of performance.
I’ve worked on projects totalling over £1bn for clients such as Land Securities, Legal & General, Skanska, U+I, Tishman Speyer and Wates. I sit on the UKGBC’s Zero Carbon Task Force and the University of Brighton’s Green Growth Platform. I also work as Development Manager at Bioregional Homes, building our own One Planet Communities.
I have a BSc with Honours in Human Geography from University of Reading, an MSc in Sustainability of the Built Environment from the University of Brighton, a Level 5 Diploma in Project Management and an RICS Certificate in Project Management.
I am a trustee of a community centre in central Brighton. My 6-a-side football team has played every Monday for the last 12 years, and we are still terrible.
