A building owner cannot achieve net zero without the support of its tenants. They play a key role in transitioning an asset to net zero – from submeters to retrofits – tenants will be the most affected by these changes. For the real estate community, involving tenants makes financial sense too: strong tenant engagement can lead to higher rates of renewal, faster lease-up, rent premiums and smoother scope 3 reporting. Collaborating to achieve an owner’s net zero goals enables tenants to have healthier, more sustainable spaces with more productive employees with higher retention rates, as well as lower utility bills and progress to support their own corporate goals.
But what does net zero tenant engagement look like? This session will explore the strategies that organizations are using to engage tenants in their net zero assets that mutually help each other to achieve their respective ESG goals. Hear from both the owner and tenants’ perspective on what has been effective engagement.
