Emma Hatch

Head of ESG, Transport for London
Emma is Head of ESG at Transport for London (TfL)’s property company. Emma is establishing and leading a team who are ensuring that TfL – which is one of the capital’s largest landowners - future-proofs its existing commercial property portfolio, and continues to take a world-leading approach to building thousands of new, high-quality homes and offices - all the while helping create a greener, kinder and more connected London.
Prior to this role, Emma was a Senior Development Manager at managing a range of major residential-led schemes across the capital. 
Specialising in partnerships, Emma’s experience establishing and working in joint ventures with house builders, developers and housing associations has given her first-hand insight into making these projects a success. She also seeks to strengthen collaboration with development partners and other public sector bodies - for example championing an educational engagement programme to help improve the inclusivity and diversity of the built environment sector.  
Emma joined TfL in 2016 after starting her career in the Planning & Development team at Gerald Eve, and subsequently managing a strategic land portfolio at the Church Commissioners. Her career path has given Emma a breadth of experience - across site assembly, planning and design, delivery and business operations.
