How to get the lease that makes sustainability happen

Tenants have a vital role to play in creating the right environment for sustainable, good business operations to prosper, and it all starts with getting the lease right. Best practice leases - otherwise known as green leases – provide the framework for delivering strong environmental performance for tenancies over the long term.

CitySwitch hosted an event in Sydney on 25 February focusing on:
•    What is a ‘green’ lease?
•    Why is a green lease important for achieving sustainability outcomes?
•    Insights from the Sydney Better Buildings Partnership 2014 Baseline Lease Study
•    How to get one whether you’re negotiating a new lease or in the middle of an existing one
•    What are some of the barriers you might face
•    Learnings from an existing green lease case study example

Speakers and topics included:

Pip Harley (CitySwitch Program Manager: City of Sydney): Why should you care?
- Overview of best practice leasing and insights from the Sydney Better Buildings Partnership 2014 Baseline Lease Study.


Tristan Gannon (Associate Director, Transaction Management: CBRE): How do we achieve it?
