“Green” Lease Forms Posted
The Real Property Association of Canada posted “green” lease forms for single building and multi-building projects. The forms address sustainability principles and objectives and enable landlords and tenants to establish sustainability targets for energy, water, indoor air quality, and recycling. The forms also have provisions that enable landlords to carry out “green” renovations to existing building stock, and anticipate and provide for both carbon offsetting by a landlord, and future carbon trading. Users can also register to receive updates on the forms.
