How can cities help commercial real estate
cut carbon emissions?

Cities around the world are partnering with owners and occupiers to accelerate sustainability efforts

More than 60 percent of carbon emissions within our cities typically come from buildings. As a growing number of local governments realize the importance of buildings in meeting their net-zero or science-based targets, cities from New York to Paris to Singapore are embracing innovative ways to cut emissions in new and existing commercial real estate.

Like transportation, industry, and grid infrastructure, decarbonizing and electrifying the built environment will be critical to a sustainable net-zero carbon global economy by 2050. How can building owners and occupiers work alongside cities to tackle emissions within their assets and across their portfolios? Find out in this episode of Building Places, as host James Cook talks with JLL’s Greg Bolino, Global Head of Sustainability Strategy and Assets, and Jeremy Kelly, Lead Director of Global Cities Research.
