SACRAMENTO, CA- The California Sustainability Alliance has added to their Web site a link to a “Green Leases Tool Kit” designed to help both owners and tenants of commercial real estate overcome barriers to “greening” leased office space. The kit is designed to provide a framework for owners and tenants to work together in reducing the environmental footprint of their facilities.

Founded in 2006, The California Sustainability Alliance is a market transformation program managed by Navigant Consulting, administered by Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas), and funded by California utility customers under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission.

Available at, the Green leases Tool Kit was created after the CSA brought together representatives from Bank of America, JP Morgan, CB Richard Ellis, Thomas Properties Group and Fireman’s Fund Insurance Co. to work alongside Governor Schwarzenegger’s Green Action Team. Their task was to come up with a strategy for promoting the greening of leased office space, which can result in operating cost savings, enhanced productivity, a healthy environment, and increased asset values.
