Landlord's Energy Statement
With funding from the Carbon Trust, the British Property Federation and the Usable Buildings Trust have developed the Landlord's Energy Statement (LES).
This is a device that helps landlords to draw together, understand and report on the energy used by the common services (such as heating, ventilation and lifts) in their buildings, and the resulting CO2 emissions.
The landlord's energy statement:
- identifies what energy is being used and where
- takes account of the forms of energy being used
- converts the energy used into carbon dioxide emissions
- allows the energy efficiency of landlord's services to be compared with sectoral benchmarks to produce ratings
- allows year-on-year performance improvements to be tracked
- provides a robust energy reporting system
- takes separate account of both on-site and off-site renewable energy supplies
- gives tenants who need to prepare display energy certificates the necessary information on the energy and carbon content of their landlord's services.

It was developed by the BPF with guidance from six leading BPF members. A full list of the organisations that have registered to download, and are using, the LES information is available by clicking on 'current users'.
