CSR heads take seat at mayor's tableMarch 2010
Corporate responsibility experts are among nine new commissioners appointed to the London Sustainable Development Commission, which has the job of advising the mayor of London, Boris Johnson, on sustainability policy.
Among the new commissioners, who will particularly focus on London's hosting of the 2012 Olympics, are Paul Toyne, head of sustainability at the housebuilding firm Bovis; Andy Wales, who is brewer SABMiller's global head of sustainable development; and Paul Edwards, head of sustainability at the property development business Hammerson.
Other appointments include Andrew MacAskill, supply chain director at Skanska, and Ed Gillespie, co-founder of the CSR consultancy Futerra.
The commission is an independent body with a remit 'to inform and champion London's approach to quality of life and embed sustainable development principles into decision-making across London's sectors'.
The new appointees join 12 existing commissioners drawn largely from the public sector.
