There is growing pressure on organizations to adopt more responsible and sustainable business practices

There is growing pressure on organizations from employees, tenants, clients, cities and shareholders, as well as from society at large, to adopt more responsible and more sustainable business practices. This is coupled with heightened expectations for greater accountability, transparency and urgent climate action.

With the built environment responsible for c.40% of global carbon emissions, reducing the environmental impact of real estate will be a key priority for investors, developers and corporate occupiers in 2021 and beyond.

Translating sustainability ambitions into actionable strategies is the next big challenge

To get a better understanding of how organizations across the globe are progressing in their journey toward net zero carbon and to what extent sustainability ambitions are being translated into actions, JLL commissioned an independent survey of nearly 1000 senior executive leaders across 20 countries.

Our survey reveals that real estate investors, developers and corporate occupiers have sharpened their focus on responsibility, environmental sustainability and social purpose. However, translating good intentions into achievable targets will require partnership and transformative thinking.

Read the full report to find out how industry leaders, those with the most advanced and successful real estate decarbonization strategies, are tackling the challenge, discover what steps they are taking on the path to net zero and learn about their key areas of focus and investment.
