London, 15th February 2011 Jones Lang LaSalle has been recognised as a market leader in its services and approach to clients who seek sustainability solutions according to a new to report, released today, from independent analyst firm Verdantix.

The Verdantix report, Green Quadrant® Sustainable Real Estate Advisors, is based on in-depth interviews with an independent panel of 15 senior leaders across the real estate investment, development and tenant communities within the UK. Its in-depth study compared 17 of the UK’s real estate advisers on 44 sustainability criteria including their provision of sustainability services in brokerage and agency, corporate finance, valuation, planning and development, design and build, project management, facilities management and corporate real estate.

“Jones Lang LaSalle stands out amongst leading firms in terms of services and approach,” commented Verdantix industry analyst and author of the report, Ray Crowley.

In line with our Global Sustainability Commitment, we have made a significant investment in training and recruitment to ensure that as a firm, we are able to meet the growing demands of the green economy since we view the increase in sustainability issues as an opportunity to develop and provide new services.
