Sustainability

QuadReal aims to be a global sustainability leader through efficiency, engagement and innovation. The 745 Thurlow management team honor this mission by actively working to decrease energy consumption, increasing diversion rates, and participating in QuadReal’s engagement campaign: “We Care Too”.

745 Thurlow was built with innovation in mind. The building includes:

  • Triple glazed windows with advanced coating to reduce energy use
  • Smart lighting systems that harvest daylight and “sense” occupant needs
  • Utilization of green roofs on the 3rd floor terrace and top levels of the building for water harvesting and re-use strategies to reduce water consumption
  • Comprehensive waste management plan including recycling services for organics, mixed paper and cardboard, plastic and metal containers, soft plastic, clean white Styrofoam, light bulbs and tubes, batteries, soiled paper and napkins, as well as electronic waste

The 745 Thurlow management team honor Our Sustainability Commitment with active involvement in QuadReal’s engagement campaign: “We Care Too".

The program involves six themes throughout the year with three key components: poster displays, short videos and events. The themes for 2021 change every two months and are:

  • January – February: Community
  • March – April: Energy Conservation
  • May – June: Health & Wellbeing
  • July – August: Water Conservation
  • September – October: Waste Reduction
  • November – December: Community Engagement

For each theme, the posters and videos are designed to catch people's attention, familiarize tenants with sustainability in our building and provide an opportunity for engagement. To further tenant engagement, four events are held annually and are based on the theme at the time.
