Cushman & Wakefield, a leading global real estate services firm, today announced the appointment of Midori Suzuki as Head of Sustainability & Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), Japan, effective 1 July 2022.

Sustainability & ESG is a key area of focus for both real estate users, investors and building owners throughout the Asia Pacific region, and interest and demand for the practice has increased significantly in the Japanese market.

Real estate is a key component of social infrastructure, and we are now at a turning point where we need to reevaluate its environmental performance, contribution to society, and the way it should be used. There is an urgent need to prioritize and embed ESG practices, which goes beyond efficiency and profitability of real estate. We recognize the importance of ESG and will continue to strive to provide the best ESG solutions and insights to better serve the needs of our clients, our business and the industry.”
