JLL Celebrates Earth Day 2016

0 CommentsBy

The built environment accounts for about 40 percent of global energy consumption and around a third of the world’s carbon emissions, which means the real estate industry can play a significant role in reducing climate change impact.

In the last year alone, JLL signed the Caring for Climate declaration, pledged emissions reductions to the NAZCA and attended COP21 in Paris to show our support for a strong international climate agreement. To continue this momentum, the firm celebrated Earth Day last week and JLLers from around the world took part in related activities.

In Chicago, sustainability is an integral part of JLL’s corporate headquarters renovation at Aon Center. A prime example is our LED lighting and sensor control system that automatically dims the lights for a 40 percent reduction in energy, while also providing plenty of light for work. Lights come on when employees arrive and dim when they go home. Whether dark or light, we’re always thinking green.
