Participants commit to publicly share building data
QuadReal Property Group, Triovest Realty Advisors Inc., Concert Properties Ltd., Colliers International, and the Minto Group volunteered to participate in the Disclosure Challenge and share their portfolio-wide energy, water and carbon data through the Energy Star Portfolio Manager™ platform. These organizations have been fully transparent with all their available building data, demonstrating a commitment to the responsible management of their assets and, ultimately, to energy and greenhouse gas emissions reductions.
Tenants, investors, and the public are increasingly requesting information about sustainability commitments, including the actions taken and results achieved. While tracking a building’s performance and publicly disclosing the data is accepted practice in many European countries and U.S. states and cities, public energy disclosure is in its infancy in Canada, where only Ontario currently requires it.
With the Disclosure Challenge initiative, CaGBC aims to demonstrates the value of data transparency and remove barriers to enable municipal and provincial jurisdictions to move toward with the public reporting of building performance data.
