Brunel, who became the first female chair of EPRA when she took over from Vonovia’s Rolf Buch, says she will increase the focus on sustainability and diversity and inclusion initiatives in the European property industry.

“There is no denying that EPRA, listed real estate and the wider global economy face great uncertainty in the coming months and years. But with this uncertainty comes a tremendous opportunity to create lasting change that pivots us towards a more inclusive, diverse and sustainable future,” Brunel said.
