Quebec, November 26, 2015 – The Quebec Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA Québec) held its Christmas Cocktail and BOMA BEST® certification event on November 25th. As a result, 19 buildings can now proudly display their BOMA BEST® certificates. These certificates acknowledge a commitment to reducing one’s ecological footprint and to maintaining excellence in environmental best practices. BOMA Canada released a renewed version of the BOMA BEST® program along with a new trademark last September. Designed to be more easily understood and associated with environmental standards, BOMA BEST® certificates continue to be synonymous with rigourous building operations.

The event was held at the Édifice Roland-Giroux on Laurier Blvd in Québec City. BOMA Québec is pleased to congratulate the following companies, and would like to underscore the achievements of the Société québécoise des infrastructures for obtaining a Platinum certificate, as well as for the number of buildings certified.

About the new BOMA BEST®

The program now has five levels: Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Certified. These levels, along with a more intuitive trademark will allow the occupants of certified buildings to more quickly associate the certificate, the level and the quality of the achievement in terms of environmental practices. The program is constantly evolving and new tools are being developed. They include an upgrade of the existing questionnaire to keep up with industry standards, a new flexible, user-friendly and customizable software platform; additional assessment protocols such as BOMA BEST® for Sustainable Workplaces to recognize tenants’ environmental initiatives; as well as a new Resiliency Assessment Tool to offer guidance toward reducing risks related to short and long-term extreme weather events.
