(Waterloo Region, ON) July 15, 2014 – Sustainable Waterloo Region is expanding the
Regional Carbon Initiative (RCI) with the launch of a new Collaborative Facility Membership
option, and is excited to welcome the Marsland Centre on Erb Street as the program’s
Under the Collaborative Facility Membership option, building tenants are encouraged to
partner with the property owner or landlord and participate in creating a greenhouse gas
(GHG) reduction strategy for the entire building. This collaborative approach helps solve the
traditional sustainability challenges in buildings with multiple tenants and landlords. The
new membership model provides an incentive for landlords and tenants to partner on
projects and find mutually beneficial solutions.
As a pioneer in the program, Marsland has taken a significant step in improving their
environmental sustainability. A value-added space provider that primarily deals with custom
turnkey office and light manufacturing space for industries in the tech and finance sectors
and operating mainly out of Waterloo, Marsland joins 62 other RCI members from diverse
sectors across Waterloo Region in committing to setting voluntary GHG emission reduction
“Marsland Centre Limited has always put sustainability and environmental stewardship at
the forefront of our practices and we are truly excited to be partnering with the Regional
Carbon Initiative to help further our impact and allow our tenants to gain a more active role
in the process,” says Alexandra Marsland.
Tova Davidson, Executive Director of Sustainable Waterloo Region, is pleased to see
innovative new RCI membership opportunities come to fruition, and to see property owners
like Marsland Centre Ltd. excited to lead the way. “We hope their commitment to action will
inspire other property owners and landlords to consider how they can reduce their GHG
emissions across Waterloo Region while benefitting both their tenants and their bottom
line,” she says.
