December 10, 2018

CHICAGO, Dec. 10, 2018 – JLL (NYSE: JLL) today was named one of America’s Most JUST Companies and, for the third consecutive year, the industry leader in real estate. The recognition comes from Forbes and JUST Capital, a nonprofit that for three years has surveyed thousands of Americans on the issues they care about and ranked US companies according to their performance in those areas.

The JUST Capital rankings encompass the 1,000 largest publicly traded companies in the US and are based on one of the most comprehensive surveys ever conducted on public attitudes toward corporate behavior. The 2018 surveys involved 9,000 Americans who selected the following topics as important: fair pay and good benefits; customer treatment and privacy; beneficial products; environmental impact; job creation; community support in the U.S. and abroad; ethical leadership; and long-term financial growth. JLL outperformed its peers in all those categories.

“JLL is committed to supporting the needs of our employees, clients and communities,” said Greg O’Brien, CEO, Americas. “We’re pleased and honored to lead our industry for the third consecutive year and to be recognized for our practices around pay equity, job creation and sustainability.”

“Trust in our institutions is more important than ever right now,” said Forbes Chief Content Officer Randall Lane. “The JUST 100 recognizes companies that are doing right within society. The rankings help companies gauge their progress on benchmarks that go far beyond quarterly earnings toward long-term value-creation for all stakeholders.”

As one of America's Most JUST Companies, JLL is also included in Goldman Sachs Asset Management’s JUST US Large Cap Equity ETF (Ticker: JUST) – the first ever exchange-traded fund based on just business behavior, constructed from JUST Capital’s rankings.
