The impact we have on the environment counts.

Developing strategies that reduce our environmental impact and operational costs is a critical component of our program. 

ACTIONS

We strive to employ key actions to improve and further enhance our environmental footprint, which include:

Tracking and monitoring all landlord-paid utilities as well as tracking tenant utility data wherever possible.
Strategically implementing green building certifications to highlight sustainability initiatives.
Annually reviewing and evaluating opportunities to increase efficiency and reduce costs.
Implementing base building upgrades and providing tenants with improvement allowances to complete sustainability efforts, when feasible.
Participating in sustainability reporting to enhance disclosure.

PERFORMANCE

Our progress in respect to our key actions is well underway as we continue to execute our initiatives and targets.

Energy Efficiency
Many of our industrial properties have energy efficient features, such as energy management systems, LED lighting and recycling programs. We continue to evaluate energy saving devices across the portfolio to reduce energy consumption and drive down greenhouse gas emissions.
Utilities
We are actively collecting, tracking, and monitoring landlord paid energy, water, waste, and recycling across the portfolio.
Green Building Certifications
Our current portfolio has 20 green building certifications. We have further assessed the portfolio and identified an additional five properties for near-term certification (in process).
Resources
Circulated sustainability-focused resources for tenants and property managers, including a Tenant Fit-Out Guide and an Industrial Tenant Sustainability Guide.
