Recap: Green Business Forum: Green Leasing, April 25, 2013

Posted Date:

The April 25 Green Business Forum focused on the topic of Green Leasing.  Adam Sledd, Program Manager, Green Leasing and Federal Buildings, Institute for Market Transformation presented ways to reduce the divide between landlords and tenants to attain corporate sustainability goals. A key mechanism for tenants is to negotiate split incentives within the Operating Expenses clause in leases.  This can increase energy efficiency in buildings.  Laurie  McMahon, Senior Managing Director, Principal, Cassidy Turley  remarked that the DC Metro region is advantaged by the presence of 61 million square feet of GSA buildings. Federal  sustainability regulations have sharpened the skill set of architects, lawyers, property managers, etc. here.  Although a “one-size-fits all” lease does not exist  given the variables of the built environment and tenant needs, she advised that  green issues are contracted up front so they are not diminished or neglected over time.
