Green Lease Leaders: Using the Lease to Make Buildings More Healthy and Efficient
The Institute for Market Transformation (IMT) and the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Better Buildings Alliance’ Green Lease Leaders continues their series of reports with this look at 2018’s Green Lease Leader designees—including Federal Realty, Ivanhoe Cambridge, TD Bank, and The Tower Companies—that have successfully implemented health and wellness strategies into their green leases and overall operations.
Commercial buildings account for approximately 20% of energy use in the U.S., with leased spaces representing 50% of consumption. Green leases, also known as high-performance or energy-aligned leases, break down pervasive barriers in the commercial, industrial, and retail sector by equitably aligning the costs and benefits of energy and other sustainability investments of building owners and tenants so they can work together to save money, conserve resources, and ensure smarter, more efficient operation of buildings.
