Green Leases

 

The Australian Government has a number of energy efficiency initiatives which are administered by the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency.  To reduce the energy consumption of Government operations, the Energy Efficiency in Government Operations (EEGO) policy aims to progressively improve overall Australian Government energy performance by establishing energy efficiency targets for Government agency office buildings.  Green Lease Schedules (GLS) are used to commit energy efficiency improvements in Government office buildings and are agreed to by both building owners and Government tenants.
