MONTREAL, 16 November 2016 – The Building Owners and Managers Association of Quebec (BOMA Quebec) is pleased to salute the energy and environmental performances of more than 40 buildings. BOMA Quebec is especially proud of the record number of Platinum level certifications awarded. These were given to buildings with a score of 90% or more, a reflection of their commitment to the environment. Among the firms receiving this highest level of BOMA BEST® certification were Ivanhoe Cambridge and the Société québécoise des infrastructures.

BOMA Quebec was also delighted to bestow its first certificate for the latest BOMA BEST® module, the Sustainable Workplaces .

That is how the Canderel head office became the first firm in Quebec to be certified a BOMA BEST® Sustainable Workplace!

The program consists of five levels – Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Certified. Such certification and an intuitive brand image means that the occupants of certified buildings can count on quality environmental practices and management. The program is constantly evolving, and on October 1, 2016 a new version of the questionnaire was launched. The new, completely revamped questionnaire is on a brand new digital platform that is more flexible, more user-friendly and customizable. It also has new supplemental evaluation protocols. These include BOMA BEST® for sustainable workplaces based on tenant activities, and a new resilience measuring tool to evaluate a building's vulnerability to extreme weather events.
