More and more, property managers and owners are seeking green building certification for their leased office spaces. But making an investment in sustainability without considering a tenant’s behavior can undo some of the benefits of a green building. How do property managers and organizations ensure that their tenants and employees make the most of their green space?
One of the most challenging aspects of a sustainability program is encouraging good employee behavior. This challenge is often related to poor communication, lack of motivation, and barriers within the employee environment. In order to overcome these issues, property managers and organizations can implement a few best practices to encourage their tenants and employees to embrace green actions.
The Alliance has developed a set of tools to help guide organizations through the process of greening their operations and staff behaviors. Intended to be an ongoing reference, the Green Tenant Guide aims to walk organizations through planning and implementing their sustainability program. Readers will learn how to work with organization leadership, property managers, and staff to set clear and feasible goals, establish buy-in and excitement among employees, define metrics, and measure and communicate results.
