QuadReal's property management is committed to partnering with tenants on reducing our environmental footprint, while enhancing workplace wellness for all occupants. We’ve included all of our sustainability resources below for your use.
As part of our sustainability engagement program for tenants, We Care Too is the 2021 campaign theme. We Care Too is about connecting the caring actions of our tenants and residents to the caring actions at QuadReal. It acknowledges the daily efforts of our stakeholders to enhance the natural and built environment. In short, we want to help our tenants reach their sustainability goals while we achieve ours.
This year's campaign is composed of six themes covering a range of sustainability topics. The themes include a greater emphasis on community, health and wellness given the changes experienced by individuals and communities due to the pandemic. We Care Too, therefore, responds to our tenants' and priorities.
January - February Community Theme
March - April Energy Conservation Theme
May - June Health and Well Being
July - August Water Conservation
September - October Water Reduction
November - December Community Engagement
As part of implementing QuadReal’s sustainability commitment, in 2019 Western Canadian Place welcomed thousands of ‘’new residents’’ after 2 beehives were installed in our building. With this new sustainable initiative, we are proud to take part in the great movement for more eco-conscious cities.
Urban beekeeping has increased as a response to a significant and constant decline in domestic honeybee colony numbers in North America. Bees pollinate more than 130 varieties of fruits and veggies around the globe – that’s a third of our food supply.
Our thousands of new residents pollinate the urban flora that surrounds during the summer. At the end of the season, we harvest the honey, which we share with our community. During winter months hives are covered for hibernation and the bees will comfortably stay in the warmth of their hive, where they’ll maintain an internal temperature of up to 35 degrees Celsius!
