Devon supports organizations in solving complex problems, particularly related to sustainability, performance, and impact. She helps organizations define, develop, and implement customized sustainability programs and/or standards for their building portfolios that authentically align with their brand, values, purpose. She also supports cross-functional communications and strategy to achieve buy-in among key stakeholders and align efforts with the organizations’ broader strategic goals and ESG efforts, and works with organizations to identify areas of material impact and opportunities for improvement that include research-based, cost-effective, and data-driven solutions. Alongside this, Devon tracks, measures, and manages building portfolio impact (energy, water, waste, emissions, etc.) to understand baseline performance, establish goal-setting, and implement strategies for ongoing improvement.
ON REIMAGINING THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT:
“I’m reimagining the built environment by helping organizations create spaces that are educational, engaging, and inspiring; as well as a place of connection to the natural world and their immediate and broader communities. Empowering real estate and workplace teams to make meaningful decisions that positively impact society and have reduced negative impact on the natural environment. Helping organizations creatively and authentically integrate and represent their values into the spaces they design, own, and/or occupy.”
ON A FUTURE THEY WANT TO LIVE IN:
“I want a future where all feel a sense of belonging, safety, connection, inspiration, and joy. One where we are in balance with our natural environment, creating with low impact and regenerative practices, and integrating the short and long-term impact of our solutions as part of our decision-making.”
