Fiera Real Estate Canada, a leading investment management company with offices in North America and Europe and a team of over 130 employees, has achieved Planet Mark certification.
This is Fiera Real Estate Canada’s first year of business carbon footprint reporting and Planet Mark certification. Since certifying to Planet Mark, the company has set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually.
Understanding and measuring its carbon footprint is the first step in identifying ways to minimise its impact on the planet. Over the next year, the company will be working towards reducing its carbon emissions and sharing its journey with its community to inspire others. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, Fiera Real Estate will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hope to encourage continual improvements within its community.
“I am delighted to welcome Fiera Real Estate to Planet Mark certification. The property industry is ripe for change, and Fiera recognises that. Committing to reducing its carbon footprint is an important step in the company’s sustainability journey, and Fiera has an inclusive policy that will not only help cut carbon, but will also become a business asset. I look forward to this growing partnership with Fiera and seeing their progress on sustainability.”
Fiera Real Estate recognises the importance of integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues within its investment management processes. The team believes that they have a responsibility to their investors to fully understand the impact of these issues and to embed ESG considerations into the way we manage our funds so that we may drive long-term value and mitigate risk. Fiera aspires to be among the global leaders in ESG integration, implementing a wide reaching ESG strategy that is responsible, resilient, and engaged.
As part of the Planet Mark certification, Fiera Real Estate Canada has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
