Culligan presents Oceansaver Accolade to JLL

Culligan celebrates Jones Land Lasalle’s commitment to the reduction of single-use plastic bottles by constantly promoting active actions of sustainable development

27 MARCH 2023 – Warsaw, Poland

Culligan International, the innovative brand in consumer-focused sustainable water solutions and services, is proud to present its latest Oceansaver Accolade to Jones Land Lasalle (JLL) in recognition of their ongoing commitment towards a global sustainability program. JLL’s program supports climate action via sustainable property management creating safer and healthier areas for all and providing inclusive spaces that create equal opportunities for thriving communities.

The Culligan Oceansaver accolade is given to organisations across the world that have taken steps to reduce single-use plastic bottles in areas of their organisation or operations and recognises the dedication to making significant and meaningful changes that will reduce their negative impact on the environment. By making changes to eradicate the reliance of single-use plastics, they can be prevented from polluting the world’s oceans and reduce their impact on climate change.

Jones Land Lasalle is a leading global real estate services firm who has made sustainability a core pillar of its business strategy. The company has committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by two percent each year, with a goal of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2040.

Being a member of the World Green Building Council and the Urban Land Institute, Jones Land Lasalle has also established a Global Sustainability Board to oversee its sustainability efforts and report on progress to stakeholders. JLL’s commitment to sustainability is further evidenced by its annual sustainability report, which provides detailed information on the company’s environmental and social performance.

Having the Zip Hydrotap units installed in their offices in downtown Warsaw has had a significant positive impact on the environment. Not only does the Zip Hydrotap have several energy-saving features, but it also features an advanced filtration system that reduces the amount of plastic water bottles used by guests and employees, leading to less waste in landfills.

On average having one Zip Hydrotap that is used by 60 people will save more than 300kg of plastic annually, meaning that by using a Culligan hydration system JLL saves the planet around five tons of plastic…per year!

Pablo A. Ribeiro, Managing Director for Culligan Poland said, “In Culligan, ESG is fully integrated in everything we do, from our product design to our business model and partnerships. In this regard, it has been an absolute pleasure to offer the Oceansaver accolade to JLL, a cornerstone business and sustainability partner. We have chosen JLL to highlight the efforts they undertake in innovation and research to improve their own environmental footprint and that of their tenants.”

“Together, with a valuable long-time partnership, Culligan and JLL truly display maximum water efficiency with minimal environmental impact and are leading the way in sustainable solutions that will create safer and healthier spaces for all communities.”

The production and disposal of single-use plastics continues to have a devasting impact on our planet. Globally, one million single-use plastic bottles are consumed every minute with just 9% recycled. By 2050, it is estimated that our oceans will contain more plastic waste than fish, with 12 billion metric tons of plastic in landfills taking more than 400 years to degrade.

At Culligan, we change people’s lives and improve the environment by providing clean, sustainable, great tasting water that makes a real difference in the health and wellness of people globally. Rooted in the ESG concept is the belief that profit, and purpose, can coexist and that companies have an ability and an obligation to make the world more sustainable and equitable. The Oceansaver accolade is a perfect reflection of Culligan’s commitment to ‘achieving greater sustainability through the reduction of single-use plastics’; one of Culligan’s core commitments that align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and serve as the focus of work to build a better world. With these commitments, Culligan products save 40 billion single-use plastic bottles being used globally, with each new bottle-free cooler saving 1,440 single-serve bottles annually.

Culligan has already presented accolades to The Four Seasons Hotel, Miami, DPD UK, Goldman Sachs UK, Interserve on behalf of E. ON and the Iberostar Group amongst others, and will continue to recognise deserving, sustainability-focused customers across the world who are pledging to combatting the single-use plastic bottle problem that is severely affecting our planet.
