Capturing Hidden Value in Class B and C Office Portfolios through Energy Efficiency and Green Leasing

Recorded On: 07/08/2020

The Class B/C office market is a traditionally forgotten segment for energy efficiency and green leasing. Constraints on many fronts - time, staff, resources hold back project implementation. BOMA & Yardi funded research on strategies to achieve energy efficiency across Class B/C office portfolios. These owners stand to benefit financially: cost-sharing with tenants through green leasing, utility savings from energy projects resulting in increased asset value, and more satisfied tenants. Learn from real estate leaders achieving real value from energy efficiency solutions, including green leasing clauses.
