Provides a general understanding of what are green leases, key elements of a Green Lease Schedule and their use in the private sector.

A Green Lease is a lease between a landlord and tenant that aims to ensure that the environmental impact associated with the on-going use and operation of the building is minimised. It creates a legal and management framework under which both parties are required to achieve and maintain the building’s environmental performance throughout the term of the lease.

Intended for the use of building owners, agents, tenants, facilities managers and environmental consultants.
