MONTREAL, November 15, 2017 – The Building Owners and Managers Association of Quebec (BOMA Quebec) is pleased to salute the energy and environmental performances of many buildings. The Building Environmental Standards certification sets performance benchmarks for indoor air quality, energy management, recycling and re-use, waste reduction, tenant awareness as well as health and safety. Levels are determined by points allocated by an independent expert during an on-site inspection. The goal of the program is to “Create a sustainable environment, one building at a time.”
We are proud to offer our congratulations to the following building management companies.

About BOMA BEST®
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.
