JLL signs WGBC Net Zero Carbon Building Commitment to achieve global net zero carbon emissions by 2030

In September 2019, JLL became the first property consultancy in the UK to sign up to the WorldGBC’s Net Zero Carbon Buildings (NZCB) Commitment, which helped establish a blueprint for JLL’s sustainability program to achieve net zero carbon emissions across all JLL occupied buildings by 2030. JLL made the announcement with the World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) on the opening day of Climate Week NYC.

The WorldGBC NZCB Commitment is unique in positioning energy efficiency as a central component to achieving decarbonization across global portfolios, in addition to generating and procuring renewable energy to meet reduced energy demand.

The majority of JLL’s reductions will be achieved through the implementation of measures to deliver its science-based target by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi), as aligned to the 1.5C ambition of the Paris Agreement. Any residual emissions will be addressed via the purchase of eligible carbon offsets. JLL will seek to minimize the purchase of offsets by driving the take up of renewable energy and improving the energy efficiency of its portfolio as a priority.
JLL’s Net Zero Carbon Building Commitment in numbers:
  • 460 buildings
  • 474,967 m2 total floor area
  • 27,761 tons of CO2e portfolio carbon emissions
  • 93,000 employees

Said Christian Ulbrich, JLL CEO, “JLL is again demonstrating our determination to play a full part in mitigating climate change. Through our own ambitious sustainability targets, and through the advice and services we provide to our clients, we will work to fulfil our corporate purpose of shaping the future of real estate for a better world.”

“As real estate is responsible for 40% of the world’s carbon emissions, JLL is dedicated to reducing our own emissions and also to partner with our clients to help them do the same. We encourage all in the real estate sector to join this commitment to create a decarbonized built environment,” said Richard Batten, Global Chief Sustainability Officer, JLL.

“We must continue to drive momentum, ambition and leadership towards decarbonizing the built environment, not only to combat the climate crisis but also unlock a green recovery from Covid-19 that benefits people, the planet and economies,” said Cristina Gamboa, CEO, WGBC.
