JLL Launches Non-profit Focused on Mitigating Climate Change

JLL Foundation invests in startups dedicated to environmental sustainability

CHICAGO, May 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its purpose to shape the future of real estate for a better world, JLL (NYSE: JLL) has established JLL Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to making a long-term impact on environmental sustainability.

Working with Good Machine, a venture studio specializing in the climate impact space, JLL Foundation takes a non-traditional approach to helping organizations that work to mitigate climate change with a focus on the built environment. As an impact investor, the Foundation offers zero-interest recoverable loans and reinvests the returned funds. Additionally, recognizing the need for speed in mitigating climate change impacts, it is building a network of like-minded co-investors to promote innovative solutions.

"The JLL Foundation's aspiration to create a significant impact on climate-related issues over the next 10-20 years is well aligned with JLL's purpose of shaping the future of real estate for a better world," said Christian Ulbrich, JLL CEO. "As companies everywhere focus more on achieving their own sustainability goals, providing assistance to startups that can offer solutions to environmental challenges can make a real and long-term difference."

Grantees are selected not only based on their ability to provide lasting, positive climate impact, but also on the diversity of their teams or ownership structure and ability to scale to other countries around the world. Examples of organizations that have already received funding from JLL Foundation include:
