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.

Having a tenant that achieves LEED for Retail certification allows you to market your portfolio as one that includes LEED-certified space. LEED certification can help to enhance the value of your property and offers a point of differentiation in attracting tenants. This also opens opportunities for you to be involved in an increasingly prevalent marketplace trend. For building owners that are considering LEED certification, a LEED for Retail tenant can expose you to the LEED process and get you acquainted with overall criteria. And it provides a successful on-site example as you help other tenants in your building facilitate the LEED for Retail process.

A New Way to Fund Energy-Efficiency Projects
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.
