2013 Energy Star Sustained Excellence Award Recognizes Jones Lang LaSalle Commitment to Energy Efficiency
- Mar 06, 2013
Chicago—The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) a 2013 ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence Award in recognition of its continued leadership in protecting the environment through energy efficiency. This marks the second consecutive year JLL has received a Sustained Excellence Award for its dedication to driving energy efficiency in its operations and in buildings it manages for investors and corporations.
Energy savings are a part of the value that JLL brings to its corporate real estate clients. In 2012, JLL helped clients save 1.7 billion kBtu in its U.S. portfolio under management, avoiding 295,375 metric tons of CO2—the equivalent of removing 57,900 cars from the road. Globally, the firm reduces client energy costs by more than $100 million each year.
Teams led by JLL also completed several projects in 2012 that reduced energy in high-profile buildings, including installation of new exterior lighting at Miami Tower in Miami, a lighting retrofit of Union Station in Chicago, and an energy retrofit and LEED Gold certification of Moscone Center in San Francisco.
The firm also made progress on its commitment to the White House’s Better Building Challenge to help clients reduce portfolio energy consumption by 20 percent in buildings totaling 98 million square feet by 2020; and increased its participation in ENERGY STAR’s National Building Challenge, with 16 properties in the competition in 2012.
Executives of Jones Lang LaSalle, an ENERGY STAR partner since 1998, will accept the Sustained Excellence Award at a ceremony to be held March 26, 2013 in Washington, D.C.
