Published on 2017-05-05

On Thursday 4 May, Corporate Responsibility Magazine (CR Magazine) added JLL to its 18th annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens List.

The roster recognises the standout corporate responsibility and sustainability performance of public companies across the United States. As the only commercial real estate company listed, this marks the third consecutive year JLL has been included. 

"For JLL, being a good corporate citizen is central to who we are," said Richard Batten, JLL's Global Chief Corporate Responsibility Officer. "This award reaffirms our commitment to Building a Better Tomorrow for our clients, employees, shareholders and the communities in which we live and work."

The 100 Best Corporate Citizens List documents 260 data points of disclosure and performance measures—harvested from publicly available information in seven categories: environment, climate change, employee relations, human rights, governance, finance, and philanthropy & community support. The list ranks the Russell 1000 Index.

"CR Magazine is proud to present the only ranking list that doesn't rely on self-reporting," said Elliot Clark, CEO of CR Magazine. "Each year, the 100 Best Corporate Citizens List measures the success of the corporate responsibility movement by celebrating the most successful, most transparent companies who report on their responsible practices. We congratulate those honored on this year's list for their commitment to corporate responsibility."
