Building a Better Tomorrow

JLL Universal ValuesThrough this sustainability leadership agenda, Building a Better Tomorrow, we seek to meet our vision through four pillars: Clients, People, Workplaces and Communities. JLL’s universal values—ethics, teamwork, and excellence—mean we are trusted to deliver value everywhere. JLL also actively serves as a thought leader in sustainability by promoting widespread change across our industry and beyond.

By applying our global project management capabilities to the 4.0 billion square feet of property we manage, we deliver leading sustainability solutions to investors and occupiers throughout the world. We provide a range of services covering the construction, operation and maintenance of their facilities as well as advice on a range of strategic solutions such as energy management and reduction programs that improve the efficiency of our clients’ portfolios.

As a professional services firm, we are nothing without our people. This means helping our employees grow, develop and engage in a working experience that engenders loyalty, commitment and motivation. We believe that building a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture leads to a world of breakthrough ideas for our clients and opportunities for all our employees to develop their skills and career.

We understand and capitalize on our opportunity to positively impact the communities in which we live and work. We do this by helping our global and local communities through volunteering and charitable giving as well as donating our time and expertise to those in need. And while we can make the biggest difference in our clients’ real estate, we also benefit from occupying more efficient, flexible and resilient offices. To achieve this, we work to ensure that JLL’s occupied space around the world is energy efficient and provides alternative, flexible and technologically savvy working practices.

Ultimately, Building a Better Tomorrow means moving from hundreds of JLL employees with a deep expertise in sustainability (mainly environment) to thousands of JLL employees with a basic awareness of sustainability in its broadest sense (social, economic and environment).
