Glyn Evans becomes LEED Accredited Professional


​​​Prague, 10. July 2014 – Glyn Evans, Director of Project and Development Services at JLL, has successfully completed and passed his examination to become a LEED Accredited Professional, located in the Czech Republic. 

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) was developed by the U.S. Green Building Council in 2000. It is an internationally recognized mark for building owners and occupiers advising them on how to implement green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. Currently there are 10 LEED certified buildings in the Czech Republic, with a further 35 projects registered for certification.

As a LEED Accredited Professional (LEED AP), Glyn Evans will manage certification processes and evaluate the building performances in areas such as sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. Certified projects are awarded four levels of certification.

Glyn Evans comments: “JLL has over 1,500 accredited green professionals worldwide, along with its own Sustainable University which provides training and resources enabling us to help our clients develop, refurbish and fit out commercial buildings using sustainable best practice and principals. Sustainable buildings are becoming the standard for new developments in the Czech Republic and the LEED Certification process is an essential tool to ensure the right sustainable measures are adopted for each project, along with the added global recognition that the certification provides. The LEED advisory services we are now able to offer complement our agency, property management and project management capabilities and add to our ‘one stop shop’ approach for our clients.”

Glyn joined JLL in June 2011 following the merger with King Sturge. Glyn has over 9 years of Project Management experience within the CEE region. He also served as Chairman of RICS Czech Republic between 2009 and 2012.
