2022 and 2023 Annual Reports

JLL Foundation

Our work with the JLL Foundation to produce their first and second Annual Reports augments Gabriel’s longstanding experience in researching and reporting on sustainability initiatives. The JLL Foundation is an impact investor focused on climate-mitigating startups, backed by JLL, one the world’s largest commercial real estate and investment management companies.

In each year of operation, the JLL Foundation partnered with 15 entrepreneurial companies. Collectively, all 2022 and 2023 loan recipients (100%), are reducing greenhouse gas emissions, 86% make a sustainable impact on real estate, 52% are reducing waste, 48% are conserving water, and 34% are having a social impact. Beyond climate change mitigation, these companies are building a clean economy, creating green jobs and construction, transforming food, packaging and agricultural systems, and innovating tech to measure impact and drive change.

Liz Campbell-Warner, Gabriel’s Chief Writer and Head of Strategy & Research, led the project, which included interviews with the portfolio company Founders and CEOs to produce case studies for the report alongside the narrative outlining their mission, impact and how the Foundation helped. The design features photographs of the portfolio companies’ activities around the world, which range from risk management to manufacturing. While vastly different in so many ways, they share a deeply held commitment to making the world a better place.

“As impact investors, we have helped these companies survive and thrive by deploying catalytic capital and through their association with the JLL brand. By reinvesting returned funds, we are building a sustainable model that benefits all stakeholders.”
