Sustainability

The protection and preservation of our environment and community is a core value at Intact Place. We are proud to bring you our corporate responsibility platform that serves to improve the environmental and social performance of our buildings. The resources listed on this page have been created to help tenants understand our sustainability program, and how you can help make your workplace a clean, green and more enjoyable space to work.

WE CARE TOO!

As part of our sustainability engagement program for tenants and residents, We Care Too is the 2021 campaign theme. We Care Too is about connecting the caring actions of our tenants to the caring actions at QuadReal. It acknowledges the daily efforts of our stakeholders to enhance the natural and built environment. In short, we want to help our tenants reach their sustainability goals while we achieve ours.

Alveole Beehives

As part of implementing QuadReal’s sustainability commitment, in 2019 Intact Place welcomed thousands of ‘’new residents’’ after 2 beehives were installed on the skylight in the East Tower. With this new sustainable initiative, we are proud to take part in the great movement for more eco-conscious cities.

Urban beekeeping has increased as a response to a significant and constant decline in domestic honeybee colony numbers in North America. Bees pollinate more than 130 varieties of fruits and veggies around the globe – that’s a third of our food supply.

Our thousands of new residents pollinate the urban flora that surrounds during the summer. At the end of the season, we harvest the honey, which we share with our community. During winter months hives are covered for hibernation and the bees will comfortably stay in the warmth of their hive, where they’ll maintain an internal temperature of up to 35 degrees Celsius!
