CHICAGO, Apr. 28, 2022 – JLL (NYSE: JLL) has been recognized by Ethisphere, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, as one of the 2022 World’s Most Ethical Companies. For the 15th consecutive year, JLL has been honored for demonstrating exceptional leadership and a commitment to business integrity through best-in-class ethics, compliance and governance practices.

In 2022, 136 companies from 22 countries and 45 industries were honored. Of these, JLL is one of only four honorees in the real estate industry and one of only 12 that have been on the list 15 times or more.

“It’s an honor to be included in Ethisphere Institute’s 2022 list of the World’s Most Ethical Companies for the 15th consecutive year – a tenure only a handful of companies have achieved,” said Alan Tse, JLL Global Chief Legal Officer. “As one of our core values, ethics is at the heart of everything we do at JLL, and our steadfast commitment to integrity is key to helping us shape the future of real estate for a better world.”

“Today, business leaders face their greatest mandate yet to be ethical, accountable, and trusted to drive positive change,” said Ethisphere CEO, Timothy Erblich. “We continue to be inspired by the World’s Most Ethical Companies honorees and their dedication to integrity, sustainability, governance and community. Congratulations to JLL for earning the World’s Most Ethical Companies designation.”

JLL has also been recognized with Ethisphere’s Ethics Inside® Certification. This certification includes a comprehensive review and evaluation of a company’s corporate governance systems and practices, ethics and compliance program, corporate citizenship and responsibility initiatives, and leadership, reputation and legal history.

  • Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index

  • Drucker Institute WSJ Management Top 250
