Triovest Presents its 2015 Sustainability Report
Triovest is pleased to present our 2015 Sustainability Report. This second-annual sustainability report was prepared using global best-practice guidelines. We believe that reporting in a public, transparent manner motivates continuous improvement and promotes engagement with our employees, clients, tenants and other stakeholders.
“Triovest pursues sustainability because it aligns with our values and it makes good business sense,” says Vince Brown, President and CEO. “We continue to build a service-oriented team that creates value for our clients, tenants and each other, and continue to work hard to achieve results.”
Triovest’s goal is sustainability leadership and strong progress is being made. In 2015 we continued to implement leading environmental, social and governance (ESG) best practices right across our organization. We improved in many areas and have plans in place to achieve next-level performance.
2015 performance highlights include:
- Recognized with a Green Star in our inaugural GRESB Real Estate Assessment response
- Received Canada’s 2016 Clean50 Project Award (clean50.com) for our comprehensive research into sustainability priorities
- Increased operational green building certifications from 32% to 42% of total sf under management
- Achieved a 5.8% reduction in like-for-like energy consumption in our office portfolio
- Established asset-specific energy, greenhouse gas emissions, water and waste targets
Future plans include:
- Complete a detailed assessment of employee engagement
- Investigate opportunities to improve the coverage, quality and timeliness of our sustainability data
- Continue to identify and control risks, and embed best practices across our organization
“Triovest has more than 50 ESG commitments which cut across our business,” says Philippe Bernier, Director of Sustainability. “We thank you for your interest and support as we work to improve our own performance and help to generate positive change throughout the entire commercial real estate sector.”
