In its latest edition of the Global Sustainability Perspective, Jones Lang LaSalle targets current and future energy incentives, mandates, and climate standards around the globe. The report discusses particular subjects including energy efficiency in buildings, environmental/social/governance (ESG) reporting, and carbon emission reduction initiatives.
"Carbon reporting, energy and water consumption, renewable energy generation, and other environmental issues are high on the list of concerns for governments around the world, and many of the actions taken to address these issues affect commercial buildings," said Dan Probst, chairman of Energy and Sustainability Services at Jones Lang LaSalle. "As a leading global commercial real estate services firm, we have an obligation to understand the impact of national and provincial laws on our investor and occupier clients worldwide in order to provide world-class expertise and strategies for leasing, investment, development, and facility management."
A slew of municipal, state, provincial, national, and regional environmental laws affect businesses seeking to locate overseas. But companies can benefit from certain tax breaks, grants, and incentives if they are informed of them.
