Model Green Lease

Table of Contents


  • Created after a year of work by a group of savvy, commercial real estate professionals
  • Brings the green building movement to the economic center of commercial real estate – the lease agreement between the landlord and tenant
  • Crafted by a task force of attorneys, real estate brokers, corporate tenants, landlords, and green building consultants from both sides of the negotiating table with experience having negotiated thousands of office building leases.

The Goals:

  • Create a lease document that encourages green office buildings, maximizes the return on investment for green buildings, and provides a healthy and productive workplace.
  • Unbiased - written to balance the financial and operational needs of landlords, tenants, lenders and investors.
  • Coverage: IAQ, energy use, carbon credits, water consumption, recycling, green cleaning specifications, insurance, commissioning, operating costs, tenant improvements, and building regulations in new or existing building or complete a lease on an office building that for various reasons may not be seeking certification.
  • Requirement: An annual Environmental Performance Report consistent with ASHRAE, Energy Star, Green Globes, and LEED.
