On January 29 2024, the Better Buildings Partnership (BBP) launched its updated Green Lease Toolkit. The environmental performance of buildings is fast becoming a differentiator in determining value for Real Estate investors, and the BBP Toolkit is expected to be a new market benchmark for green leases and drives the conversation about wider sustainable goals.

In this webinar, Real Estate experts Tom Baines and Nick Bridgman, Gowling WLG alongside industry guests Laura Thrower, Responsible Property Investment Analyst at Royal London Asset Management and Kirsty Draper, Head of Sustainability for UK Agency, JLL (and member of the Green Lease Toolkit steering committee) discuss the updated BBP provisions (including the introduction of social value), the impact the Toolkit is expected to have on sustainable property ownership and future transactions and how owner/occupier collaboration is key to implementing green lease provisions and reaching mutual ESG goals.
