Today at 1pm Property Week, the Carbon Trust and Building are hosting a live online debate
Following the very positive response of our recent debate ‘Greening Commercial Property – Mission Impossible?’ in March, we have pleasure in extending the debate online to hear wider industry views on how to move forward and deliver greener buildings, in particular on the issue of landlord tenant divide.
Non-domestic buildings account for almost a fifth of the UK’s carbon emissions. Yet progress made towards greener buildings by the industry has been limited. One key issue is the landlord and tenant divide, where landlords bear the cost of making efficiency improvements but tenants reap the benefits in the form of lower energy costs, creating a barrier for immediate action.
But evidence is emerging that greener buildings are starting to make business sense, and with government legislation such as the Carbon Reduction Commitment, pressure on landlords and tenants to reduce carbon emission from their buildings have never been greater.

- Current thoughts on the business case for greener buildings
