Daniel Hodkinson

Business Analyst, CBRE2015 Sydney Fellowship


Sustainability is not something to be achieved in isolation, it is about a collective journey, we are more effective together than on our own.

What was the most valuable thing you got out of CSL?

Redefined my understanding of sustainability and my role in its achievement

Why are you passionate about sustainability? What was the moment or event that made you decide to become a ‘change maker’ in your field?

I love solving complex problems, and there is no greater, more complex problem to solve than the sustainability of the human race. It will require every person on this planet to take part in a conversation, to understand and act to better the planet. I like a challenge...

How did CSL play a role in directing your current path or project?

CSL has given me the tools, skills, confidence and direction. My goals are not a destination to be reached any time soon, but CSL has given me the bolt of energy to start a journey I can be proud of.

In 25 words or less, tell us why leadership for sustainability is important.

Sustainability is the most complex challenge of our age. It will require strong leaders to shape a collective vision for sustainability that can be embraced and implemented around the world.

What do you plan to do next on your sustainability journey?

Its all about communicating to find the right people to join you on your journey, sometimes to guide you and sometimes to follow you, and sometimes to walk beside you. Sustainability is not something to be achieved in isolation, it is about a collective journey, we are more effective together than on our own.

What are three words you would use to describe the Fellowship Program?

Passionate, inspiring, humbling
