Green Lease Strategies
The USGBC plans to launch LEED for Retail before the year's end. The new rating system will offer retailers a fresh approach to meeting customer preferences and promotes a universally beneficial model between landlords and tenants - the green lease.
The Cree LR6-DR1000™, a deeply recessed 6" fixture powered by Cree TrueWhite® Technology, provides an unprecedented efficacy of 80 lumens per watt, allowing a 100W incandescent light to be replaced with only 12.5W. Designed for use with the H6-GU24 6" Architectural Housing, the LR6-DR1000 is designed to minimize glare and has exceptional color quality, a CRI of 90 @ 2700K.

Many tenants are now seeking to reduce their carbon footprints and meet corporate sustainability reporting requirements; they also need to be in buildings that truly manage their energy consumption. They need assurance that the current and future landlord will provide what they need. What does this mean to you as the building owner?
Green leasing helps landlords and tenants manifest the sustainability goals they share. It also provides a hedge against rising costs for trash removal, energy, and water; preemptively addresses tightening building codes; or differentiates a space in a soft leasing market.
The green lease movement encourages green practices by eliminating the financial disincentive to landlords to invest in energy efficiency. Using a green lease will encourage landlords to invest in efficiency – but not immediately. Often, there's resistance from landlords and tenants to modify existing leases with a green amendment, leading both parties to table the issue until the expiration of the current lease.
