Modern Slavery & Human Trafficking
Jones Lang LaSalle Incorporated and its subsidiaries (“JLL”) approves and issues this Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement under Section 54(1) of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 (MSA). JLL carries on business in the UK through its UK based affiliates, including Jones Lang LaSalle Limited and LaSalle Investment Management, but our responsibilities and commitment to uphold the principles of the Modern Slavery Act extend across all of our operations.
Considered one of the world’s leading professional services firms, JLL is known for its commitment to the highest ethical standards and to practices that enhance the welfare, safety, and well-being of our employees and wider communities. A Signatory to the United Nations Global Compact since 2009, JLL has embraced the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals, identifying and linking seven of those goals to JLL’s Building a Better Tomorrow agenda, which aims to drive new ways of thinking across our services and into activities where we procure goods and services on behalf of our clients. Our vision to advance sustainability principles extends not only to providing safe and efficient buildings, but also to support the communities in which we do business.
Since we published our first statement in 2017, we have taken a number of steps to raise awareness of this serious issue within global management, as well as within our higher risk business units. While we have made progress toward improving our due diligence processes, particularly with respect to our global procurement structure, many challenges remain in managing and monitoring a complex supply chain. We continue to review our approach to human rights and modern slavery issues within our business and our supply chains and to search for solutions that will improve the lives of all workers.
