Wintech strengthens sustainability team with new appointment

Wintech has strengthened its Sustainability Consultancy Business Unit with the appointment of a new Senior Sustainability Consultant, Ashiqua Sulthana.

Gurprit Bassi, Director and Sustainability lead stated, “We are delighted to welcome Ashiqua to Wintech.  Ashiqua brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience to expand the company’s sustainability services offering.  The appointment will enable us to support the team in this important and growing area. 

Ashiqua will lead the sustainability division to evolve existing sustainability initiatives, including Wintech’s net zero pledge, and to drive forward the company’s sustainability agenda.”

The Wintech pledge entails taking next steps in achieving net zero carbon emissions across all operations by the end of 2023. Wintech’s sustainability agenda is firmly entrenched in assisting its clients in identifying and reducing its environmental impacts wherever possible, and across all construction stages, as well as actively and collaboratively participating in industry change. 

Ashiqua commented:

“It’s an incredibly exciting time to be joining Wintech and I am looking forward to leading the sustainability programme and building on the success that the team has had to date.  Wintech has gone from strength to strength in recent years and I am delighted to be part of Wintech’s future.”

Gurprit further commented, “Wintech is ideally positioned in the industry to influence and drive the sustainability of facades and construction in general. Façades form a significant proportion of the embodied carbon on a construction project and can also have a significant influence on the operational energy use. Ashiqua’s knowledge, expertise and passion for sustainability will help spearhead our activities to assist in achieving the government’s 2050 net zero carbon goals.  Not only this, Ashiqua will help progress our aims of ensuring that sustainability is considered at the heart of all decision making throughout all stages of a construction project.”
