If you’re looking to incorporate more sustainability and wellness initiatives for commercial office tenants, now is the time to start planning. Spring is a great time to promote and encourage all kinds of green and healthy programs, especially with Earth Day, National Walking Day, and Bike to Work Day occurring in April and May.
Tenant demand for these types of programs has grown significantly, especially as companies are thinking more about their employees’ health and wellness. This demand has changed what makes a building more marketable and attractive to potential tenants, especially in the DC region.
For building owners and property managers, these types of amenities and building features can make a building more competitive, increase tenant satisfaction, and ultimately help retain quality tenants.
Sustainability and Wellness Ideas
Below are a few suggestions you can use to start planning sustainability and wellness initiatives this spring and throughout the year.
Capital Bikeshare memberships
Tenant bike tune-ups or seminars on how to bike to work are effective events to engage tenants and talk about sustainable commuting. City Cycling classes are also popular among people interested, but concerned about starting to bike to work.
Work with LEED and ATP to complete a LEED certification transportation survey to learn how people commute to and from your property.
Earth Day is April 22 and a great time to talk about sustainability and how our commutes impact the environment. It's easy to discuss wellness, transportation, and the earth in the same conversation.
