COMMITMENT TO CLIMATE IN OPERATIONS, DEVELOPMENT, INVESTMENTS & TRAINING
Because our business is buildings, SmartCentres continually strives to find new methods of reducing their environmental footprint.
We are continually exploring and implementing environmental actions and technologies that will minimize our environmental footprint while providing a reasonable return on investment.
Green building certifications such as LEED and BOMA Best provide an independent means of identifying sustainably constructed and operated buildings. We currently have two LEED certified buildings and 36 BOMA Best certified buildings.
People matter most for us. That means being an enlightened employer, landlord, partner and member of the community.
For over 30 years, SmartCentres has been an integral part of thriving Canadian communities.
As long-term neighbours invested in the success of the neighbour¬hoods in which we build, we proactively seek to engage, understand, and support community groups through open communication, sponsorships, and events.
SmartCentres is committed to the highest standards of Corporate Governance.
SmartCentres has a longstanding commitment to conduct our business in a manner that is ethical, transparent, and accountable to our investors and other stakeholders. This now includes the way we oversee and manage ESG factors. SmartCentres’ Board of Trustees (the Board) is responsible for governance and oversight of the ESG Strategy.
Our Board is comprised of a group of highly experienced professionals with a diverse mix of skills, experience, knowledge, and backgrounds. The Corporate Governance Committee reviews the skills, knowledge, and effectiveness of the Board, its committees, and individual Trustees
on an annual basis. Trustees are encouraged to attend educational events to deepen their knowledge. A list of events attended by our Trustees in 2021 is provided in the
2022 Management Information Circular.
