Sustainability – Best Practices for Landlord/Tenant Relationships

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 A number of recent efforts have made considerable progress in creating appropriate leasing structures to eliminate the split incentive in commercial buildings – essentially addressing who pays and when. However, efficiency investments in buildings can be more effective when implemented by an integrated and concerted team involving owners, tenants, and occupants.

Strong, dynamic, and informed relationships between these parties can lead to a greater awareness of opportunities in the building, improved efficiency efforts, increased tenant satisfaction, and shared cost savings.
