As part of the National Strategy on Energy Efficiency the Tenant's Guide to Green Leases and the Green Lease Handbook have been developed to promote the use of green leases in the private sector. The preparation of these documents was overseen by the Commercial Buildings Committee, comprising officials of the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism and all State and Territory governments.
The key objective of the Tenant's Guide to Green Leases is to raise awareness of the importance and benefits of using Green Leases from a tenant perspective.
The Green Lease Handbook is a practice guide for lawyers acting for landlords or tenants seeking to incorporate green provisions in commercial leases. It provides more detailed legal and technical information about Green Leasing concepts and associated issues.
