New sustainability director for Turley’s northern team

We have appointed James Blake as director in our sustainability team in Manchester. The move comes at a time of expansion for our sustainability service, which currently operates out of our Birmingham and London offices.

A chartered environmentalist with over 20 years’ experience, Blake joins from engineering and environment consultancy RSK. He brings a strong track record in the planning and built environment sectors, and has undertaken numerous corporate sustainability and carbon reporting projects for a diverse range of clients.

Blake has a strong track record in providing climate change advice to the environmental impact assessment (EIA) process, having contributed to recent Institute of Environmental Management (IEMA) guidance. This will further enhance our capability and resource in this area, which was boosted earlier in the year by the appointment of Andy Ricketts as head of EIA.

Speaking about his appointment, Blake said:

“The complementary services on offer at Turley are a real distinguishing factor and I’m excited to work with colleagues in the planning, design, economics, heritage and strategic communications teams. I look forward to embedding the sustainability service in Manchester and demonstrating the immense value we can add for Turley’s existing client base, as well as attracting new opportunities in the north.”

Colin Morrison, head of sustainability, added:

“We’re delighted to welcome James as we continue to invest in our growing team in line with increasing demand for our services. His breadth of knowledge and experience is a valuable addition to our northern offering and the national sustainability team.”
