CHICAGO, May 11, 2022 – JLL (NYSE: JLL) has received the 2022 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy for continued leadership and superior contributions to ENERGY STAR. This is the 14th year that JLL has been named an ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year and the 11th year winning the Sustained Excellence Award.

“At JLL, we remain focused on a culture of sustainability and creating positive, healthy, and inclusive spaces for our people, our clients, and our communities to thrive,” said Cynthia Curtis, Corporate Sustainability Officer, Americas, JLL. “We’re thrilled to be recognized by ENERGY STAR again this year as this award underscores our commitment to our purpose-driven strategy and the progress we are making across our ambitious targets.”

In September 2020, JLL committed to achieving net-zero carbon emissions across all JLL-occupied buildings by 2030, which includes: 371 buildings; 414,610 square meters total floor area; 39,270 tCO2e portfolio carbon emissions; and 98,000 employees as of December 2021.

Each year, the ENERGY STAR program honors a group of businesses and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to protecting the environment through superior energy achievements. ENERGY STAR award winners lead their industries in the production, sale, and adoption of energy-efficient products, homes, buildings, services, and strategies. These efforts are essential to fighting the climate crisis and protecting public health. The Sustained Excellence award is the highest honor bestowed by the ENERGY STAR program.

“We know it’s going to take all of us working together to tackle the climate crisis, and the 2022 ENERGY STAR award-winning partners are demonstrating what it takes to build a more sustainable future,” said EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan. “These companies are showing once again that taking action in support of a clean energy economy can be good not only for the environment, but also for business and customers.”
