Submitted by Sustainability Roundtable, Inc.
As Earth Day approached, more than half a dozen world leading firms came together to make it clear to the landlord industry that they value more sustainable and healthy leased space. Top companies jointly endorsed a simple set of six principles to make it clear to their service providers, landlords and potential landlords that they are in great company when they seek more sustainable and healthier leased space. Sustainability conscious companies are invited - on a no cost and no obligation basis - to join these leading companies by publicly endorsing the six simple principles that comprise the Sustainable Tenants’ Leasing Principles.
Interested Companies can simply let the organizer of the Sustainable Tenants’ Leasing Principles – Sustainability Roundtable Inc. (“SR Inc”) – know of their interest in endorsing the principles before June 1, 2017. Whether firms publicly endorse the Sustainable Tenants’ Leasing Principles or not, all firms are invited to benefit from them by simply adding a question to their Request for Proposals (RFPs) for leased space asking interested landlords: “Do you support all of the Sustainable Tenants’ Leasing Principles?”
Some of the world’s fastest growing and most sought after corporate tenants have already committed to the Sustainable Tenants’ Leasing Principles including Akamai, Anthem, Intuit, Lenovo, LinkedIn, Oracle, Pegasystems and Teradyne. Others are welcomed to join them as original signers of the Sustainable Tenants’ Leasing Principles through contacting SR Inc to endorse the principles by June 1, 2017.
SR Inc Member-clients requested that the Sustainable Tenants’ Leasing Principles be created to build on the success of the Corporate Renewable Energy Buyers’ Principles and the Corporate Colocation & Cloud Buyers’ Principles (which now regularly appear referenced in RFPs issued by top corporate buyers the world over). Consequently, SR Inc created the Sustainable Tenants’ Leasing Principles with guidance from Patrick Flynn, Senior Director of Sustainability at Salesforce (who helped lead on the creation of the Corporate Colocation & Cloud Buyers’ Principles). Signing companies need not be SR Inc Members and absolutely no costs or obligations are required. Indeed, all sustainability conscious commercial tenants are encouraged to sign onto this simple but important statement of shared principles.
Pro Bono Service: If your company does join these world leading companies as an Original Signer of the Sustainable Tenants’ Leasing Principles by June 1, 2017, SR Inc will donate to your firm on a pro bono – zero cost – basis, SR Inc’s proprietary, editable, Sustainable Leasing Strategy Playbook developed with leading Member-clients over seven years, featuring actionable Executive Guidance & Tools for Site Selection, RFPs (including negotiating leverage matrix), LOIs, Lease Language & Work Letter (for tenant build-out).
The initial signers of the Sustainable Tenants’ Leasing Principles look forward to the prospect of your firm joining them to send a clear signal to a fragment, multi-trillion dollar, landlord market about the fact the best corporate tenants value more sustainable and healthier leased space. Don’t hesitate to reach out to Brittany Doherty, Program Director of SR Inc’s Sustainable Business & Enterprise Roundtable, if you think that your firm may want to lead in this simple, highly efficient and effective manner before June 1, 2017.
