Welcome to the Green Tenant Toolkit! These tools will assist tenants and landlords in reaching their sustainability goals within commercial buildings. The objective is to enable and enhance partnerships with owners or managers, occupiers, and their agents to minimize operating costs, save water, manage energy, and reduce carbon emissions by identifying split incentives and offering best practice solutions.
This toolkit is designed for use by tenants, occupiers, and owners of all classes and sizes of commercial buildings, and may be used at all points within the life cycle of the lease. The toolkit, which is based upon the recommendation of the Mayor’s Task Force on Existing Commercial Buildings (City and County of San Francisco, December 2009), was developed by a diverse group of real estate and environmental professionals representing brokers, property management, large tenant groups, attorneys, electrical utilities, and design and construction experts - convened by the Business Council on Climate Change and SF Environment. The toolkit was designed for San Francisco buildings, but may be adapted for use in any location.
