Green Lease Contracting

Share this Post:

Reaching energy and climate goals requires involving building users, to let them understand what energy savings can be achieved thanks to changes in their behavior.


Green lease contracts (GLCs) offer a model providing a structural platform for cooperation between building owners and tenants.


Contracts are always energy-related, but they are often supplemented with information about the choice of materials, waste management, information and training activities, and paving the way for more sustainable buildings.


GLCs stimulate dialogue and continuous improvement, reaching for financial incentives if such a need arises.


Various forms of GLCs can be developed for different kinds of buildings.
