It influences how we design and build new projects, upgrade and expand existing properties and manage the day-to-day operations across our portfolio. We recognize that sustainability principles drive our success and innovation, and have made it our priority to develop and execute one of the most comprehensive sustainability programs in the Canadian real estate industry.

OCCUPANT ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM
As part of our commitment to Stakeholder Collaboration, we launched an Occupant Engagement Program at Simcoe Place in 2013. The purpose of the program is to educate, empower, and engage tenants about sustainability and wellness initiatives in order to create a healthier, more sustainable workplace community.
GREEN COUNCIL A key component of the Occupant Engagement Program is Simcoe Place’s Green Council, which is comprised of tenants and building management volunteers. The Green Council steers the direction of the Occupant Engagement Program and helps to shape the sustainability and wellness initiatives that are implemented at the building. Since its launch, the program has focused on energy conservation, recycling and organics, and introduced fitness programs, nutritional awareness programs, and stress reduction clinics.
