In the following 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. Both companies excel at prioritizing sustainability commitments when negotiating with landlords.
