Introduction from our CEO

At JLL, we are conscious of our ability and responsibility, to make a substantial positive impact on the world in which we live. We have a significant opportunity to influence the buildings where we live and work. Through the advice that we provide to clients, we can help create the homes, offices, workplaces and communities of the future with sustainability – in its broadest sense – at the heart of our efforts.

Our vision is to make JLL a world-leading professional services firm by creating spaces, buildings and cities where everyone can thrive. To deliver this vision, we have established Building a Better Tomorrow, our global sustainability leadership agenda. Through the Foundations and four Pillars of the agenda, we aim to realize the value that sustainability brings for our clients, our investors, our employees and our communities by incorporating sustainability into everything we do.

In line with this, Building a Better Tomorrow seeks to embed sustainability thinking into all of the advice and services we offer our clients, including facility and property management, advisory, project and development services, investments and leasing, among others. Building a Better Tomorrow aims to drive new ways of thinking across our services and into activities where we procure goods and services on behalf of our clients, increasing the value proposition that we are already known for delivering.

The agenda also helps drive improvements in our own operations. We recognise the value of our diverse people and seek to foster a culture of inclusion. Together with our outstanding personal and career development offer, we create a working environment where everybody can achieve their full potential. We also seek to further engage our employees through rewards, recognition and ensuring the health and well-being of our employees and partners.

By advancing sustainability principles into our workplaces, we are able to provide safe and efficient buildings that result in healthy and productive environments for our employees. Building a Better Tomorrow also seeks to drive down our global travel footprint and to ensure that we are taking steps to minimize the environmental impact of our own supply chain. Additionally, the agenda will help us support the communities where we live and work through our employee volunteering activities and our cash donations, as well as helping us minimize the social impact of our supply chain.

Through the Foundations of Building a Better Tomorrow we continue to forge partnerships with various external organizations. These range from our support for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the Global Compact to our engagement with Ethisphere Institute, the World Economic Forum’s Partnering Against Corruption Initiative and local and global Green Building Councils. In this report you will gain deeper insight into how we are realizing our vision for a sustainable future, Building a Better Tomorrow for all. Thank you for your continued interest in JLL.
