New Sudbury Centre, the largest shopping centre in Northern Ontario, was recently awarded with a Leadership in Environmental Advancement Program “LEAP” award from HOOPP in the Sustainable Operator category.
Among its many sustainable achievements, the BOMA BEST gold-certified centre became the first commercial property in Sudbury’s pilot organic recycling program.
On the community engagement front, the property is involved in numerous activities to drive sustainability change, such as joining in EarthCare Sudbury, a partnership between the City of Greater Sudbury, organizations and hundreds of residents to enhance the environment and create a healthier community.
Annual events like Inspired Green Living and the Junction Creek clean-up, and the cigarette butt recycling program, are other initiatives.
Within the building, the operations team has created an annual HVAC replacement system as part of the centre’s ten-year capital plan, along with investing in major projects such as the new building automation system and LED lighting.
