Blank Rome Partner Stuart D. Kaplan will speak as a panelist at the Sustainable Performance Institute’s free, live webinar, Green Leases: A Critical Tool to Address Resiliency and Drive Efficiency, taking place Wednesday, December 9, 2020, from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. EST.

Green leases can hold the key to energy efficiency, resilience and managing in crisis. Stuart will be joined on the panel by:

  • Audi Banny, Associate Director for Private Sector Engagement, Institute for Market Transformation (“IMT”)
  • Matt Praske, Director of Energy and Sustainability, WashREIT
  • Harry Etra, CEO & Founder, HXE Partners

Topics to be covered include:

  • Design, construction and operation of buildings are central when thinking about sustainability and resilience, but what happens during occupancy when tenants take over a space?
  • How can the commitment to sustainability through the relationships between tenant and landlord be continued? How can the split incentive be overcome?
  • Can a “green gross lease” improve the bottom line for landlords and drive occupancy while improving base rentals?
  • What leasing terms can be established to set procedures that allow for easier shutdown or safety protocols to be enacted?
