American Bar Association Publishes Article on Green Leases by HGS Attorneys Ralph DeMeo and Jake Cremer
HGS Attorneys Ralph DeMeo and Jake Cremer recently published their article “Applying Old Methods to New Values: Considerations for Green Leases” in the American Bar Association’s Smart Growth and Green Building Committee’s newsletter. As green building becomes more popular around the country and in Florida, leases of these green spaces-commonly called green leases-have become more popular. The article introduces the risks, rewards, incentives, and costs of green leases. Ralph and Jake conclude that a successful green lease must give both the landlord and tenant incentives to conserve energy, reduce waste, increase recycling, and use environmentally friendly products and materials.
