“As building owners, developers, tenant companies, and other real estate decision makers strive to keep up with evolving market pressures, leading-edge companies are using the lease as a powerful instrument to create higher-performing buildings that not only save energy and money but also provide healthier work environments. IMT and DOE’s Green Lease Leaders program has made a significant impact over the past five years by setting the bar for green lease agreements and putting a much needed spotlight on the growing number of innovative firms that use their lease to achieve ambitious energy, sustainability, and business goals. We are thrilled to recognize this year’s impressive recipients who are pushing the envelope on building performance and energy-aligned leasing.”
