Reduce our carbon footprint

When it comes to reducing our carbon footprint, we have two main objectives: create and maintain healthy living environments and optimize our environmental performance.

Greenhouse gas emissions

Minimizing our environmental footprint includes adopting standards and obtaining environmental certifications.

Investing responsibly also means choosing sustainable projects to ensure the well-being and optimal development of communities around the world.

Environmental certifications

As a long-term investor, we know that certifications are important in driving the performance of our assets. Environmental certifications are increasingly valued as a tool to promote the value and quality of a building’s construction and management, in addition to fulfilling the expectations of tenants, employees, business partners and other stakeholders. Through these certifications, we can ensure that our real estate portfolio meets recognized industry requirements and standards.
