Green leases, originally from the United States, are still a comparative rarity in Australia despite the exhortations of governments for the commercial sector to adopt their precepts. This article looks at the context and substance of green leases using the Commonwealth Government's 'Green Lease Schedule' as a guide and explores changes in the conventional commercial landlord and tenant mindset which may be required to implement green lease proposals more broadly in the wider private sector. It concludes that more positive financial benefits may have to be demonstrated before there is more take up of the principles.
