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. 


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

Track and monitor all landlord-paid utilities and track tenant utility data wherever possible
Strategically implementing green building certifications to highlight sustainability initiatives and pursue ENERGY STAR certification for eligible properties annually
Annually review and evaluate sustainability opportunities to improve efficiency, reduce operating costs and reduce properties' environmental footprint
Evaluate the opportunity to increase renewable energy across the portfolio
