Sun Life Financial : CaGBC names BentallGreenOak the national winner of the Green Building Pioneer Award for innovation in climate change resiliency

08/27/2020 | 11:57am EST

TORONTO, Aug. 27, 2020 /CNW/ - Today, the Canadian Green Building Council (CaGBC) named BentallGreenOak (BGO) the recipient of its national Green Building Pioneer Award. BGO, with co-sponsorship from the firm's majority-owner Sun Life, was awarded for its innovative approach to delivering climate change resilience strategies for its commercial real estate portfolio.

BGO's globally-recognized ESG program is increasingly focused on climate resiliency as an important factor in driving value for clients, safeguarding the interests of its tenants, and contributing to the vitality of the communities where its managed properties are situated. BGO's Sustainability Innovation Lab serves as the innovation arm of the firm's ESG program, and the Lab worked with engineering consulting firm RWDI to assist in the development of BGO's proprietary climate resilience tool.

"We are grateful to the CaGBC for this tremendous honor and their constant support for the advancement of sustainability in our industry," said Anna Murray, Managing Director, Global Head of ESG for BGO. "Coordinated efforts between our property and investment management teams enable us to explore new avenues for sustainability performance through data-driven insights, standardized methodology and robust stakeholder engagement."

BGO's proprietary climate resilience tool combines industry research, on-the-ground surveying, predictive climate modelling, and adaptive algorithms to deliver tailor-made climate change plans for 413 properties across BGO's North American portfolio, totalling 75 million square feet. Sun Life's portfolio of investment properties in Canada, managed by BGO, were early adopters of the tool, delivering timely insight for asset managers responsible for the long-term performance of the properties.

"Sustainable investing is a core value for Sun Life and an important factor in how we manage the company's investment assets for the long term," said Randy Brown, CIO, Sun Life and Head of Insurance Asset Management, SLC Management. "We know that the actions we take today will lay the foundation for generations to come. The climate resiliency strategies that this tool delivers provide valuable solutions and guidance on how Sun Life's real estate portfolio can better mitigate the social and financial risks associated with climate change." 

The Green Building Pioneer Award recognizes a deserving organization demonstrating an innovative approach to the advancement of green building technology, products, capacity building, policy, design, or operations. 

 "The Green Building Pioneer Award recognizes innovation in advancing green building, so it is no surprise to see BGO, along with RWDI, topping our list," said Thomas Mueller, President and CEO, Canada Green Building Council. "Building on previous achievements, they have pioneered an approach to climate resilience, a critical priority for real estate portfolios as the incidence of extreme weather events is increasing due to rising global temperatures. Their forward-thinking will help lift the entire industry as we collectively work to meet the dual challenges of emissions reductions and enhanced resilience in the critical decade ahead."

BGO's Climate Adaption project was made possible through funding from Sun Life. Sustainable investing is one of three core pillars of Sun Life's sustainability plan, which also prioritizes financial security and healthier lives. Sun Life integrates ESG considerations into its own investment process, with the company's third-party institutional asset manager, SLC Management, managing $176.5 billion of invested assets for Sun Life's General Account as at June 30, 2020.
