Jones Lang LaSalle China Seeking Sustainability via Blockchain
According to the report, sustainability has become a critical pillar of business success in the Chinese market. So, JLL has been earnestly seeking innovative solutions to accelerate carbon emissions reduction in real estate, which brought about the recent collaboration with VeChain.
The report also stated that insufficient technological infrastructure is a major obstacle to making de-carbonization goals a reality. At the moment, the lack of consistent and validated carbon data poses a significant reporting challenge. As of now, at least two/third of Chinese corporations are looking to invest in nascent technologies to bridge the gap.
So, the best technology to make this happen is blockchain. Leveraging the VeChain blockchain, there is assurance for the ideal tool to deliver consistency and transparency in data. It has a huge potential to help bring improvement to measurement and reporting standards and accelerate progress towards the quest to realize the zero-carbon goal.
The report itemized three scenarios in which blockchain could help Jones Lang LaSalle China:
- Scenario 1: Real Estate developers and owners – easy traceability of full lifecycle carbon footprint
- Scenario 2: For enterprise tenants – better choice of green office space with ‘Carbon Label’
- Scenario 3: For enterprise employees – incentives for low-carbon behavior
