Achieving sustainability in life sciences real estate is feasible if appropriate targets are set and a proactive approach is taken by both occupiers and owners.

In our last report, Embracing Sustainability, we emphasised the challenges around high resource use in the life science industry. However, we also found that the benefits of embracing sustainability demonstrably outweigh the problems. Businesses that make moves early will see future success and stability, and many companies including JLL are already taking clear steps to achieving environmental sustainability by setting net zero or Science-Based Targets.

In this report we outline ways in which life science occupiers, developers and landowners can begin to mitigate the climate impact of their assets by measuring and setting appropriate targets, reducing their operational and embodied carbon, curbing waste and water usage, and preparing and managing for a sustainable future.
