International. JLL has joined the Science-Based Targets Network's Corporate Engagement Program to help preserve and defend nature and biodiversity in its own corporate real estate and drive engagement across the built environment sector.
Setting a science goal for nature requires companies to collect value chain data, implement systems to engage the value chain and business operations, and set and execute ambitious goals. As a first step, JLL is using SBTN's tools and approaches to identify its own material impacts and dependencies on nature. As JLL develops a full understanding of its impacts, the firm will establish a clear and transparent plan to mitigate impacts and report progress to encourage action across the sector."
The firm is equipping its advisory teams across its core lines of business with the skills and knowledge to enable clients to develop and deliver nature-related solutions for their real estate portfolios.
Erin Meezan, JLL's Chief Sustainability Officer said: "Although JLL's direct impact on nature and biodiversity is likely to be relatively low due to the location of our office portfolio, we recognise the urgent need to elevate and address nature and biodiversity. By committing to the SBTN, JLL is committed to defining and implementing achievable pathways for our business and supporting our customers on their journey towards the preservation and restoration of nature and biodiversity."
Jess McGlyn, Corporate Engagement Leader of the Science-Based Targets Network argued: "We welcome JLL to join our Corporate Engagement Program to support innovative approaches to finding positive solutions for nature alongside those aimed at achieving rapid decarbonisation."
