Global Sustainability
Program

Leading the way on sustainability is fundamental to JLL’s purpose to shape the future of real estate for a better world.

Our sustainability program

Sustainability is important to JLL because it facilitates our ability to deliver long-term value to our shareholders, drive climate action for sustainable real estate, create safe and healthy spaces for all people, and provide inclusive places that create equal opportunities for thriving communities.

Our approach
 

Climate action

for sustainable real estate
We take urgent climate action that accelerates the transition to net zero, enhances performance, mitigates risks and helps shape a better world. 

Healthy spaces

for all people
We create safe and healthy spaces that promote productivity, wellbeing, and sustainability. 

Inclusive places

for thriving communities
We provide fair and inclusive places that create positive social impact and equal opportunities.


The issues are underpinned by our commitment to the highest standards of governance and ethics. We act with honesty and integrity to build trust and foster inclusive, responsible, and lasting relationships. Ethical business practices guide our actions, define who we are and how we behave.

How we implement our program

The global sustainability strategy is set by the Global Sustainability team with extensive collaboration with internal stakeholders, including the Global Executive Board, Corporate ESG Board, Global Sustainability and Implementation leads, regional and country resources, and business line/function teams. Ultimate responsibility for sustainability rests with Christian Ulbrich, CEO and President, JLL.
The governance structure is designed to align with our global business, meaning that the focus is on delivering action through our business lines and corporate functions, and supplemented by geographic markets. This approach not only serves to ensure that we are making progress against our targets as efficiently as possible, but it also moves us closer to fully embedding sustainability into the ways we operate.
