Achieve your net zero carbon ambitions

Taking action on climate change and the greenhouse gas emissions which cause it, is a critical part of building a more sustainable future – and every business must play their part. Buildings account for 40% of emissions, creating an urgent need for the real estate sector to develop and implement plans to transition to net zero carbon.

Are you ready to become net zero carbon?

Why you need to act now

There is growing legislation driving a global consensus that all buildings must be net zero carbon by 2050. This means buildings must achieve zero carbon throughout their lifecycle, including development, refurbishment, and operation. Those who are at the forefront of this transition, who understand the opportunities, risks, costs, and value drivers across their portfolios will safeguard the future success of their business. Don't risk your business getting left behind.

Committing to net zero carbon means reducing your company’s emissions as far as possible and then offsetting any remaining emissions. Carbon emission reductions are achieved through a combination of energy efficiency measures, renewable energy generation (both on and offsite) and reducing carbon associated with building materials. Only once all possible measures have been taken should you look to offset remaining emissions.

In 2019 JLL UK committed to becoming net zero carbon in our UK workplaces by 2030 and to spearheading the adoption of net zero carbon buildings across the UK. In 2020 this commitment was extended globally. Find out more here .

We are partner of the UKGBC Advancing Net Zero programme and contribute to their ongoing research into what it means to own and develop net zero carbon buildings. We have worked with them on their net zero carbon buildings definition framework, the energy performance targets for net zero carbon offices and the feasibility study into the design, delivery and cost of new net zero carbon buildings.
