Global benchmark for excellence in sustainable buildings
LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a rating system recognized in 150 countries and is designed to leave a legacy of high-quality, environmentally friendly buildings with a reduced impact on the environment.
This voluntary program offers a thorough framework for designing, constructing, managing, and assessing various types of high-performance buildings.
Every year, we successfully divert 3,500 tonnes of waste from landfill sites by integrating LEED® standards and regulations into our construction projects.
Building a greener world
The impact of the construction and management of industrial, commercial, and residential buildings is being felt in Canada and around the world.
LEED® has been promoting the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from buildings since 1998.
It is committed to minimizing the negative impact of real estate development on human health and the environment.
- Protect and restore water resources;
