2015 Green Lease Leaders


2015 Recipients


Historically, real estate owners and tenants have had difficulty integrating sustainability into the lease process due to tension between owners and tenants over responsibilities and cost-sharing arrangements. The Green Lease Leaders program is helping to break through these barriers by shining a light on companies and real estate practitioners who effectively incorporate green lease language into their portfolio and deploy replicable solutions.

The Institute for Market Transformation and the U.S. Department of Energy's Better Buildings Alliance are proud to honor the recipients of the Green Lease Leaders recognition.

"Within our efforts to develop high-performance buildings and maintain healthy, productive work environments, the lease plays an important role by laying the groundwork and ensuring a win-win outcome with the tenants.”
