Our approach to 2020

Energy and resource use (including climate risk): Reduce our energy consumption and carbon footprint in line with climate science (Science Based Targets) across the full scope of our operations (from 2020).  Focus on data quality improvements, SBT implementation planning, and implementation of a global energy management platform.   Implement policies and practices to reduce business travel in line with SBT requirements.

Evaluate reporting in accordance with the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosure guidelines. Aim to strengthen our approach to resiliency/adaptation going forward. 

Improve our data collection on waste and water within our own operations and identify opportunities to have a measurable impact in this area going forward, with an aim to set associated targets from 2020+.

Global targets:

  • Reduce building-related GHG emissions per corporate office employee by 2% p.a. from 2017 to 2019.
  • Reduce building-related energy consumption per corporate office employee by 2% p.a. from 2017 to 2019.
  • Set a Science Based Target for JLL’s global Scope 1 and 2 emissions, and an accompanying Scope 3 target (commencing 2020).

Healthy & sustainable buildings: Apply the highest standards of sustainability and well-being in our own offices around the world; in larger offices, via achieving external certifications e.g. LEED, WELL. Integrate sustainability criteria into JLL’s Corporate Real Estate guidelines.

Global target: 100% of JLL office space larger than 10,000 ft2 to have sustainability certification by 2030.

Responsible procurement : Ensure consistency of approach to sustainable procurement process and ambitions around the world via the roll out of a global Sustainable Procurement Framework, while allowing for regional targets/priorities.  Implement policies and practices to reduce supply chain emissions in line with SBT requirements.

Global target:  Sustainable procurement framework to be adopted globally by 2020.
