Sustainability Culture

CF Fairview Park applies the GREEN AT WORK™ program. It is Cadillac Fairview’s national sustainability operational platform. Since its official launch, it has applied leading practices to integrate sustainability into property management and operations. This proprietary program is national in scope, implemented at all properties and sets operational benchmarks.  The premise of GREEN AT WORK™ is the idea that sustainability is both the right thing to do and the smart thing to do. These sustainable operations reduce operating costs, earn client loyalty and provide a healthier working environment for us all. The efforts focus on five pillars for maximum impact: (Energy, Waste Management, Environmental Protection, Sustainable Procurement, Communication).

4. Sustainable Procurement: Wherever possible, utilize environmentally friendly products, services and best management practices at all properties.

5. Communication: Inform, engage, educate and share green best practices with our employees and clients so that we can work together to make a difference.
