SYDNEY, 10 May 2022 – Global property services firm JLL has been recognised at the annual CitySwitch National Awards, with JLL’s Kashmir Palou, Customer Relationship Manager at Darling Park admitted to the CitySwitch Hall of Fame.

CitySwitch is collaboration between Australian city governments that helps office-based businesses to improve their energy and waste efficiency in order to reduce their carbon footprint. It is jointly funded by the City of Sydney, and other city and local government councils across Australia.

The annual CitySwitch National Awards recognise leading signatories that have demonstrated outstanding environmental leadership. The Hall of Fame category commends standout ‘Sustainability Champions’ whose efforts on sustainability action deserve recognition.

JLL’s Head of Property and Asset Management – Australia, Richard Fennell said, “Leading the way on sustainability is fundamental to JLL’s purpose to shape the future of real estate for a better world. It's an honour to receive this recognition of our focus on delivering excellent sustainability advice and services to our clients, and of our commitment to adding value at every opportunity.

“Kashmir has been an incredible influence in driving meaningful change for sustainability at Darling Park, Sydney. In just one example of her commitment, she worked closely with both the commercial tenants and the buildings’ waste consultants, resulting in the commercial towers improving their NABERS Waste ratings by 0.5 – 1 Star.

“Her standard of excellence, combined with her positive and proactive approach to sustainability, has formed a case study that is now used in developing training material for the sector, and keeps Darling Park at the forefront of sustainability best practices.

“In terms of commitment to sustainability, Darling Park leads the way, and is consistently recognised and awarded for their social and environmental responsibilities. As such, Darling Park has achieved carbon neutral status under NABERS and Climate Active, and in alignment with the international Greenhouse Gas Protocol.” said Mr Fennell.
