It offers comprehensive, integrated real estate and investment management expertise on a local, regional and global level to owner, occupier, developer and investor clients in 70 countries and from 224 corporate offices in 54 countries, holding itself accountable for the social, environmental and economic impact of its operations.
JLL’s green building services differ across the world as it prioritizes the concerns of its local clients and communities. However, a constant in each region is that JLL’s services address the lifecycle of a building — beginning with the design and planning and through to construction, occupation, refurbishment and ending with a sale. JLL seeks an environment that is effective, efficient and collaborative, using marketplace best practices to help it achieve its goals. By looking at both materials and processes, it is greening its space in a multitude of ways that also make sound, commercial sense.
The integrity of the LEED process goes well with JLL’s standards in building projects and operating real estate at the highest quality for clients. For JLL, membership benefits include ready access to like-minded industry professionals and current thought leadership, as well as the opportunity to interface with colleagues and clients of the highest professional level. Membership also allows JLL to get its team’s questions answered quickly, to be able to tap into the breadth and depth of information and resources at the USGBC, and provide the best project results for its clients.
