Sustainability Policies

We incorporate sustainability provisions in the following guidelines for leased buildings as new federal laws, policies, and Executive Orders are issued.

The mandatory provisions below address sustainable products and practices within leased space. Leased buildings are required to earn an ENERGY STAR® label, unless specific exceptions apply. For some lease types, a third-party green building rating certification is required—either Leadership for Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)® or Green Globes®.
