ESG—We Make it Green

Landlords and occupiers can partner on achieving their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals through green leases featuring clauses that generate efficiencies and support sustainability goals. Green leases facilitate data sharing, transparency, energy efficiency and waste management that can improve building performance and generate cost savings for both parties.  

Landlords who adopt green leases also have plenty to gain from having a greener asset. Our research shows that highly efficient, green-certified buildings can command a green rental premium over less-sustainable buildings in high-cost markets. Conversely, assets with lower energy efficiency, and without green provisions in place, may risk incurring a “brown discount” on their valuation.  

By creating shared incentives and outlining key responsibilities, landlords and occupiers can jointly leverage green leases to improve the environmental performance of both the building and its surrounding area.
