Green Lease Language Examples
This resource, created by the Institute for Market Transformation and Landlord-Tenant Energy Partnership, outlines lease language to support tenants and landlords as they draft energy-aligned leases.
From passthrough clauses designed to eliminate the split-incentive, to directives on the most environmentally efficient paints and cleaning products, the lease language allows any landlord or tenant to structure a lease that lowers costs, improves the bottom line, and strengthens landlord-tenant collaboration. These examples have been pulled from a number of academic, government, and NGO sources. Landlords and tenants should use this resource as a guide to creating their own green leases.
