Business Occupation, Tenancies and the Green Agenda
This programme is not designed for 'green experts', it's a practical guide to what's changing and what needs to be adhered to. It is aimed at typical property advisors - whether landlord and tenant agents, property managers, valuers, and occupiers themselves; and to property lawyers, developers and investors.

We all want to be seen to be green, but as soon as there’s a cost, we change colour.
Whether we like it or not, legislation and best practice is forcing all of us to adopt a green agenda; and increasingly tenants are demanding it; and investors are already alive to the damage of failing to go green with their portfolios; - and increasingly, a non green building is attracting a downward spiral of interest from them.
This means that in order to retain clients, and secure new ones, you need to be familiar with green issues..
This event is a practical guide focusing on why and how to embrace, and profit, from the green agenda.
