As the urgency around the climate emergency increases, more and more organizations are setting net-zero emissions targets. But without a common science-based definition of what constitutes a net-zero target, companies and their stakeholders can’t be sure that their long-term climate targets are credible or ambitious enough.

The Science Based Targets initiative has launched the first-ever science-based Net-Zero Standard. Combating the current inconsistencies that surround net-zero targets, it is a ground-breaking standard to ensure companies decarbonize at the pace and scale to align with the goals of the Paris Agreement and keep 1.5°C in reach. 

JLL is among a handful of global companies across all sectors with a net-zero strategy to be certified to this new global Net-Zero Standard. Going beyond the criteria of the Standard, JLL commits to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions across the value chain by 2040. 

For us to achieve net-zero by 2040, all our clients need to be on a decarbonization journey. 

Explore how we are transitioning to net-zero and how our actions will lead JLL and our clients on a journey towards a net-zero future based on the best climate science.
