Pradyumna Pandit has been appointed to the newly created role of Managing Director of Sustainability and Energy Services at Mitie.

This hire is part of Mitie’s energy roadmap, and its Plan Zero commitment to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2025.

Pradyumna has over 20 years’ experience in the engineering and technology sector, working in a number of roles, ranging from new business development to operations.

Pradyumna joins Mitie from Schneider Electric, where he served as Vice President of Digital Energy for UK & Ireland, responsible for developing energy management and optimisation services. Prior to this, Pradyumna worked for The Tata Group and Honeywell Building Solutions, where he held commercial and operational roles for advanced software engineering services, covering the manufacturing and construction sectors.

 

Supporting Mitie's Plan Zero

 

In this newly created role, Pradyumna will be responsible for developing and coordinating all of Mitie’s energy and sustainability services and solutions, such as the procurement, control and reduction of energy consumption, decarbonisation of heating and transport components in the customer’s premises, and carbon reporting and compliance. The role will support Mitie’s Plan Zero sustainability commitment, including using its carbon elimination expertise to help clients achieve their own net-zero targets. 

Pandit said of his new appointment:

“As a business with some of the UK’s most ambitious sustainability commitments, I am proud to be joining Mitie as it delivers on its Plan Zero pledge to reach net-zero by 2025. By leveraging our expertise and zero-carbon technologies, I look forward to collaborating with customers to achieve their own carbon emissions targets, working together to tackle the climate crisis.”
