We are pleased to announce that the Canada Green Building Council has once again awarded the rating of LEED® Gold EB:OM (Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance) to 150 King Street West!
Included among our green building highlights:
• Indoor Environment: Air Quality Audits
We take the health of our tenants very seriously. Indoor air quality audits are performed regularly by an independent indoor air consultant.
• Green Cleaning Policy
Our janitorial contractor, Hallmark Housekeeping has a comprehensive green policy that incorporates environmentally preferable solutions and supplies as well as sustainable housekeeping practices, all of which limit hazards to building occupants and janitorial staff.
• Sustainable Purchasing: Food
Since 2010, our Tenant Appreciation BBQs have been 25 per cent sustainable purchases. The proximity to Ontario’s Greenbelt has allowed our food and drink purchases for our BBQ to be within a 160 kilometre (100-mile) radius of the site.
We are proud to have been one of the first office towers in Canada to be awarded LEED® Gold EB Certification in 2010. This rating system is promoted by the Canada Green Building Council to encourage and facilitate the development of more sustainable buildings.
