Eleven Properties Managed by Jones Lang LaSalle Earn ENERGY STAR® for Superior Energy Efficiency


Boston, MA, March 30, 2010 – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized the top performing buildings by awarding its prestigious ENERGY STAR, the national symbol for protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency. Eleven properties managed by Jones Lang LaSalle in New England earned the honor. They are: 99 High, 73 Tremont Street, and One Financial Center in Boston; 2 Canal Park and One Charles Park in Cambridge, MA; One Newton Place in Newton, MA; 55 Hayden Avenue in Lexington, MA; One Research Drive, 110 Westboro Executive Park, 112 Westboro Executive Park, and 114 Westboro Executive Park in Westborough, MA.

Jones Lang LaSalle was recently named 2010 ENERGY Partner of the Year for its accomplishments in achieving significant energy and financial savings through energy management programs on behalf of clients and across the company. An ENERGY STAR Partner since 1998, the firm was first named Partner of the Year in 2007.

EPA’s ENERGY STAR signifies that the building performs in the top 25 percent in energy performance nationwide. Commercial buildings that earn the symbol use an average of 35 percent less energy than typical buildings, and release 35 percent less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
“Improving the energy efficiency of our nation’s buildings is critical to preserving our environment and natural resources,” said Jean Lupinacci, Chief of the ENERGY STAR Commercial and Industrial Branch. “From the boiler room to the board room, organizations are leading the way by making their buildings more efficient and earning EPA’s ENERGY STAR.”

“Our long-term partnership with ENERGY STAR helped us save our clients more than $100 million in energy costs and reduce greenhouse gases by 465,000 tons,” said Dan Ozelius, Senior Vice President of Jones Lang LaSalle. “As an increasing number of states and cities mandate energy performance, this is a vital part of our service delivery.”
