Infographic: The Power Of Green Lease Language

The Institute for Market Transformation (IMT) and the Council of Smaller Enterprises (COSE) are currently working together in the City of Cleveland (Ohio) to help commercial buildings save money and energy by connecting landlords and tenants around energy efficiency—particularly when it comes to the lease. As part of this effort, IMT and COSE collaborated with Cleveland marketing studio Kiwi Creative to develop an infographic, which shows the transformation of an average building into a high performing one resulting from green leasing language put into action.

This infographic, “How The Lease Can Bring Landlords & Tenants Together On Energy Efficiency,” highlights key examples of energy saving clauses that are typically included in a green lease. These include: regularly commissioning building systems, installing advanced lighting controls and motion sensors, submetering spaces, and training asset and leasing managers about green building benefits.
