The Canada Green Building Council has awarded LEED Platinum certification (Existing Building) to the Sun Life Building, the highest level of recognition for LEED Green Buildings, and is a mark of excellence that is known around the world.
Located in the heart of Montréal’s business district, the Sun Life Building becomes the first century-old building in North America to obtain triple Platinum certification for excellence in environmental performance and digital connectivity, having already earned BOMA BEST Platinum certification from BOMA Canada and WIRED Platinum certification from WiredScore. The building is owned by Sun Life and a consortium led by Groupe Petra.
According to Robert Dumas, President and CEO of Sun Life in Québec “We are extremely proud of this exceptional result, which can be attributed to the remarkable work done by the Property Management team at BentallGreenOak, the willingness of the tenants to adhere to our environmental programs and the commitment of all of the owners to improve environmental performance. This certification is in keeping with the values adopted by Sun Life, which has prioritized sustainable development in its efforts to build healthy and sustainable communities for more than 150 years.”
BentallGreenOak’s tenant accountability program focuses on energy efficiency and reducing carbon emissions, waste diversion, water conservation and maintaining a healthy working environment in the properties that it manages.
