Jones Lang LaSalle Donates 100 Million Yen, $1.25 Million, to Red Cross to Aid Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Relief Efforts


3/18/2011 9:59:14 AM

CHICAGO and TOKYO, March 17, 2011–Global commercial real estate firm Jones Lang LaSalle today announced the firm is donating 100 million yen (approximately $1.25 million) to the Japanese Red Cross to provide aid and relief directly to those most in need following the Japan earthquake and Pacific Tsunami that have left a path of destruction in their wake. “Our donation is meant as an earnest statement of concern for and support of the people of Japan including our 600 employees and thousands of clients in the country,” said Colin Dyer, Chief Executive Officer, Jones Lang LaSalle. “We’re providing this donation to the Red Cross as the most effective means of delivering immediate aid to those people and areas in greatest need. We encourage other organizations to join us and pledge their support to the Japanese relief efforts.”

Jones Lang LaSalle operates offices in Tokyo, Osaka, Sapporo and Fukuoka.

“Following a series of natural disasters and now nuclear disasters, there are mounting risks facing our country and there remains a substantial and ongoing need for humanitarian assistance for the families affected,” said Yoichiro Hamaoka, Jones Lang LaSalle’s Managing Director for Japan.

Yasuo Nakashima, CEO of LaSalle Investment Management in Japan added, “Our social responsibility to the community is an important cultural value for our global company and this is one way we can contribute to the recovery and help our community.”

The Red Cross is a charitable organization — not a government agency — and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the public to perform its mission. For donation information, please contact your local Red Cross.
