Green Leasing Report

The California Sustainability Alliance embarked upon a “green leasing” initiative to develop and implement strategies and tools designed to overcome the primary barriers to greening the 90% of California’s office space that is leased. The Green Leasing Report serves as a companion to version 2.0 of the Green Leases Toolkit and summarizes the Alliance’s recommendations for accelerating the greening of California’s leased office space.

Titled Greening California’s Leased Office Space: Challenges and Opportunities, the report provides information to policymakers and market participants about the pivotal role green leasing plays in achieving the resource efficiency, environmental, and societal benefits of green buildings. The report outlines the constraints on green leasing and recommends changes that need to be made to policies, programs, and practices in order to establish green leasing as standard practice in California.
