John Alker, Legal & General Capital

Legal & General Capital (LGC) has appointed John Alker as its new head of sustainability.

With over 15 years’ experience in the sector, John joins the business from the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC), a business-led not-for-profit that works collaboratively to influence industry practice and government policy, to transform the sustainability of the built environment.

At UKGBC he is director of policy & places, having joined shortly after its launch in 2007. John has also served as board director for the World Green Building Council.

“One that has always stood out as particularly influential, innovative and purpose-driven is Legal & General.

“I am delighted to be joining the great team at LGC, to support the sustainability ambitions of the business in this critical decade of action.

“We face a series of related challenges from global to local, both environmental and societal. The places where we live and work and the communities we create are at the heart of this challenge.

“That is why the scale and scope of LGC’s diverse interests in our built environment provide such an exciting opportunity – to deliver positive impact and create value in the round.”
