The Green Lease Toolkit was developed by the GCB of South Africa (GCBSA) and the South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA) in order to address the sustainable management and operation of new and existing buildings. Even though it is more relevant to the South African property industry, it remains a practical and comprehensive resource that uses established methodologies and helps landlords and tenants better understand the green lease principles.
The document starts by explaining the term “green lease” and its impacts. Then, it covers the process and benefits, along with the different types of green leases. Thirdly, the guide talks about the implementation process for both new and existing leases. Finally, it offers several practical checklists and ends with the Memorandum of Agreement.
