The adoption of residential sustainability programs : lessons from the commercial sector
Cradduck, Lucy & Wharton, Nathalie (2011) The adoption of residential sustainability programs : lessons from the commercial sector. Pacifi Rim Property Research Journal, 17(3), pp. 388-403.
The article explains and compares sustainability programs available for use by residential and commercial premises; as well as the respective legal tenure frameworks of commercial and residential tenancies. It identifies that while the desire of commercial tenants drive the participation by landlords in these programs, residential tenants appear to be ignorant of sustainable measures. The article contends that the reason for this difference is rooted in the legal and social status of residential tenants. It explores the impact that secure tenure may have in promoting residential sustainability programs and concludes by observing that the lack of involvement of residential tenants in programs stems from the absence of tenure security, which prevents any long term cooperation between the parties.
