Jones Lang LaSalle Puts All Properties in Energy Star Program
Jones Lang LaSalle has become the first major real estate service firm to enroll 100 percent of its managed property in the EPA’s Energy Star program.
The company’s portfolio includes 330 office buildings in 106 U.S. cities, according to a press release.
Each of the buildings will receive a rating of 1 to 100. Buildings that rate 75 or higher receive the Energy Star label.
On average, Jones Lang LaSalle‘s buildings rate a 67, or 17 percentage points higher than the industry average.
The 67 rating means that each of Jones Lang LaSalle’s buildings saves about $50,000 in energy costs annually, compared to the average.
Jones Lang LaSalle said that participating in the EPA’s Energy Star portfolio manager has helped it increase energy efficiency, as its buildings that have been in the program for more than 24 months scored an average of 74.
In total, 143 of Jones Lang LaSalle’s properties scored a 75 or higher, earning the Energy Star label.
In 2008, Jones Lang LaSalle said it helped clients reduce their carbon emissions by more than 438,000 metric tons and save $95 million through energy management programs that reduced aggregate energy use by 2.7 trillion BTUs.
