Property owners and managers can only directly control common areas. The majority of the occupied space fall under the direct control of the tenant. Engage building occupants by developing and implementing educational and fun programs and challenges to reduce energy use in your building.
Separate engagement strategies should be deployed to tackle areas related to energy, water, waste and emission reduction. Gaining buy-in from a tenant early in a project and having the ability to collaborate with them can yield significant savings and benefits for each party.
Even if your strategy is not yet defined, speak with tenants and get feedback and buy-in. Tenants may bring innovative ideas to the table so collaborating early can ensure that opportunities are not overlooked.
