About this session

It’s been a real struggle to get commercial real estate (beyond owner-occupiers) to buy in to the Living Building Challenge. Why is that? What hurdles still exist for building owners and how can we collectively overcome them to bring volume and scale to the large commercial building industry? This panel will explore the missing links between leased commercial buildings and the LBC, with direct experiences from real estate sustainability leaders, and specific ideas on how we can work together to get the private sector on board with the LBC.


  • Understand the real estate market’s financial decision-making process and perspective on green buildings
  • Learn how real estate calculates the costs and benefits of sustainable features in buildings
  • Identify challenges real estate is facing to achieving LBC certification
  • Determine strategic opportunities to make the case for LBC adoption in commercial real estate
