A landmark sustainability program for the Empire State Building
When the Empire State Building Company decided to make the building one of the greenest in New York City, it turned to Jones Lang LaSalle and a team of energy and sustainability experts to develop a strategy that reduces the property's environmental impact and serves as a model for owners of existing buildings everywhere.
This project will prove the viability for energy efficiency retrofits to dramatically reduce energy consumption within a sensible payback period. The Empire State Building's energy costs are expected to be reduced by $4.4 million annually and its carbon footprint by up to 38 percent. Jones Lang LaSalle currently is leading the implementation, which is set to be completed by 2013. For an in-depth description of the project, download A landmark sustainability program for the Empire State Building.
As the owner's representative and program manager, Jones Lang LaSalle drove the efforts to identify the right mix of innovative energy and sustainability practices. Our energy management and sustainability consultants were among the world-class team of environmental consulting, non-profit, design and construction experts assembled for this ground-breaking initiative.
This is just one of many examples of how Jones Lang LaSalle is partnering with leading companies around the world to provide innovative energy and sustainability solutions that drive business performance and set new standards for the commercial real estate industry.
