JLL Celebrates Earth Day 2017

0 CommentsBy

Every year on April 22, we all get a little nudge to pause and celebrate Earth Day. Not only does the day serve as a reminder to consider our individual footprints, but it also encourages us to think about the environmental impact of our buildings and communities.

The built environment accounts for nearly 40 percent of carbon emissions annually in the United States, which means the real estate industry can play a significant role in reducing the impact of climate change. At JLL, we are committed to delivering sustainable solutions that improve energy and resource efficiency, as well as ensure safe, healthy and productive workplaces.

In celebration of this year’s Earth Day, our Health Champions have partnered with Building a Better Tomorrow, our firm-wide sustainability program, to organize green and healthy activities with JLL offices across the United States. Take a look at our Earth Week social media highlights across JLL offices and managed buildings below!

JLL Celebrates Earth Day 2016

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.
