A real estate investment consultancy has already accomplished 78% of its 2020 sustainability targets set in 2016.

JLL UK completed 14 of its 18 green corporate targets, including cutting total energy consumption across all of its offices by 26% since 2012.

The company, which is a member of the World Green Building Council’s Corporate Advisory Board, also secured 35 environmental industry awards.

It improved the energy efficiency credentials of its Bristol office, maximised natural ventilation and created access to a large outdoor terrace and central atrium, with plentiful access to natural light and fresh air.

JLL UK has now upped its number of 2020 sustainable targets to 30, including using only 100% renewable electricity across the firm’s corporate estate and working with clients to help decarbonise real estate, infrastructure and cities in the future.

A new standard to measure and verify the benefits provided by green projects and programmes around the world has been launched.

The UK’s leading property owners have seen £16 million in energy savings since 2011 as a result of making their buildings greener.
