Jones Lang LaSalle joins Mayday Network


London, 23rd August 2010 – Jones Lang LaSalle has joined the Mayday Network founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2007 and convened by Business in the Community.   Named after the international ‘Mayday Mayday’ distress signal, the network’s aim is to  inspire, engage, support and challenge as many businesses as possible as they work together towards a sustainable future.
 
Katie Webber, Campaign Director at the Network, said; “The Mayday Network is united in its belief that collaboration and leadership will solve the issue of climate change, and together we are creating the route map for a better, more sustainable way of doing business.  The number of companies signed up to the Mayday Network has almost doubled over the past year to 2,850.   Mayday businesses come from all sectors and range from the smallest micro to the biggest multi- national, they all bring their own unique story and we are thrilled to welcome Jones Lang La Salle into the Mayday Network.”
 
The goal of the network is to provide firms with a central point from which they can access the best practice advice they need to cut their environmental impact. In addition to inviting more businesses to sign up to the group, the Mayday Network is also currently working on two major projects designed to promote the benefits of low-carbon business models.
 
Julie Hirigoyen, Head of Jones Lang LaSalle’s Sustainability Services team, added; “We are delighted to fulfill our commitment to the Mayday Network through our submission to the Carbon Disclosure Project. Along with other businesses in the UK, Jones Lang LaSalle is uniquely positioned to lead the movement towards a sustainable future by sharing our own carbon journey. Our involvement in the Mayday Network demonstrates the importance of reducing our own impacts, while encouraging those around us to do the same.”
