Global real estate consultancy Knight Frank has appointed Jackie Cheung as its director of environmental, social and governance (ESG) efforts for Asia-Pacific and Singapore, reporting to Tim Armstrong, global head of occupier strategy and solutions, and to Low Kin Hon, deputy CEO and head of valuation and advisory at the firm in Singapore.

Cheung, now based in Singapore, joined the consultancy two years ago in Hong Kong and has been instrumental in transforming the firm’s approach to ESG in Greater China. In his new role, he will be responsible for leading ESG efforts in Asia-Pacific and Singapore and will provide valuable insights and advisory services related to ESG factors across different countries to the firm’s clients. Internally, he will integrate ESG considerations into corporate decision-making processes to foster sustainable growth across the region.

ESG considerations, according to the consultancy’s (Y)OUR SPACE 2023 survey, are increasingly influencing real estate decisions among occupiers in Asia-Pacific. Three-quarters of the survey’s respondents believe ESG ambitions will significantly impact real estate decisions over the next three years.

“Integrating ESG factors into portfolio planning is no longer optional but a strategic imperative, and we are committed to serving as a trusted ESG adviser for our clients,” Armstrong says. “With a proven track record in delivering ESG consultancy services, Cheung’s strong connections across the region will enhance our ESG practices and initiatives, helping us guide the industry towards a future driven by ESG principles.”
