Case Study: IBM and Lendlease Leverage Green Leasing as Tenants to Achieve Net-Zero

Whether it is a commercial office, a warehouse, or a data center, a green lease enables landlords and tenants to work together better to save money, conserve resources, and ensure smarter, more efficient operation of buildings. In this case study, the Institute for Market Transformation (IMT) and the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Better Buildings Alliance highlight IBM and Lendlease, who were recognized for their green leasing as tenants.

IBM recognizes that the built environment is a significant contributor to emissions and that all real estate transactions and lease contracts that IBM undertakes need to be evaluated through the lens of IBM’s sustainability goals. With this in mind and building on their Green Lease Leaders accreditation in 2022, they have established a program with a systematic approach to ensure that sustainability criteria are central to site selection decisions and lease contract negotiations.
