The World Green Building Council has today announced that the global real estate services firm JLL has joined its Corporate Advisory Board.
The announcement follows World Green Building Week 2016, the flagship awareness raising event of the global green building movement, which was held last week by WorldGBC, its Green Building Councils and their member companies.
WorldGBC’s Corporate Advisory Board is a select group of companies which are global leaders on sustainability, and which serve to guide the organisation on its strategy and activities.
Terri Wills, CEO of the World Green Building Council, said:
“We’re delighted to welcome JLL onto the World Green Building Council’s Corporate Advisory Board—it is a true global leader on green buildings, from its work to help clients to achieve the highest sustainability standards to its role in enhancing workplace productivity and health. JLL will be a huge asset to the Corporate Advisory Board, and we look forward to collaborating with them to deliver green building for all.”
Sarah Nicholls, Director of Global Sustainability at JLL, said:
“We look forward to joining the select group of companies on the WorldGBC Corporate Advisory Board, enabling more sustainable buildings around the world. At JLL, we believe in Building a Better Tomorrow – a financially, environmentally and socially sustainable world of progressive spaces and positive attitudes where everyone can thrive to accomplish ambitions.”
JLL’s vision is to be the most sustainable real estate services and investment management firm globally. Its expertise addresses the entire lifecycle of a building—from design and planning through to construction, occupation, management, refurbishment and sale, and it advises clients on how sustainability considerations can be embedded at each of these stages to maximise value.
JLL has a strong record of achieving LEED and other building certifications for its clients, and in 2015, helped them to achieve a total of 121 green building certifications.
The firm has also played an active role in WorldGBC’s Better Places for People campaign, which promotes healthy, green buildings. In 2014, JLL contributed to the groundbreaking report Health, Wellbeing & Productivity in Offices and sits on the campaign’s Steering Committee.
