Green Leasing: An Effective Tenant/Landlord Strategy for Energy Efficiency

A Better City just produced a guide to green leases that will help hotels manage their relationships with tenants.


Does your hotel lease space to stores, restaurants, spas or other businesses? Do those businesses reflect the environmental practices and the image that you want for your property? Do the businesses lower your property's Portfolio Manager score, which will be posted by the cities of Boston and Cambridge?


Green leases might help. Green leases make environmental provisions part of a landlord-tenant agreement. They align a hotel's incentives with their tenant's incentives, and help the property meet its environmental goals.


If your property has tenants, I encourage you to read this document.

This document lists 64 systems that process food waste. It includes information that purchasers would want to know about each one, such as price, capacity, volume reduction, energy use, machine size, power requirements, materials accepted, the company website and contact information.
