CINCINNATI, May 24, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Phillips Edison & Company (Nasdaq: PECO) is pleased to announce that it has received gold-level recognition as a 2022 Green Lease Leader during the Better Buildings, Better Plants Summit. This has been announced by The Institute for Market Transformation (IMT) and the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Better Buildings Alliance.
Launched in 2014, Green Lease Leaders sets national standards for what constitutes a green lease, while recognizing landlords and tenants who modernize their leases to spur collaborative action on energy efficiency, cost-savings, air quality, and sustainability in buildings.
"We are proud to achieve this distinction, as it reflects our longstanding and ongoing commitment to working with our Neighbors to advance environmentally friendly initiatives across our portfolio," said Bob Myers, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of PECO.
PECO is proud to be part of the national trend toward green leases in commercial spaces. This year’s Green Lease Leaders represent portfolios totaling nearly two billion square feet and comprising a diverse range of buildings ranging from commercial offices to industrial buildings to data centers. Altogether, Green Lease Leaders manage more than five billion square feet of commercial and government space across North America, representing a huge potential for growth in green leases. In the commercial sector alone, green leasing has the potential to affect eight percent of leased space nationwide. IMT estimates that green leases can help reduce utility bills by up to 50 cents per square foot (22 percent) in U.S. office buildings alone, and if all leased office buildings executed green leases, the market could reap over $3 billion in annual cost savings.
