Spark Notes – December 1, 2022


The real estate industry has a long way to go to reach targeted sustainability goals in 2030 through 2050. Building owners and investors are challenged by a lack of data to track carbon emissions and processes to deliver reductions amidst increasing regulations for reduced energy usage.
Raj Singh, JLL Spark Managing Partner, weighs in with key actions and innovative solutions that enable the industry to bridge the data gap and reach global net zero goals in our latest blogpost Sustainability Measurement: The Heat is On.
