Certification story

Fiera Real Estate Canada, a leading investment management company with offices in North America and Europe and a team of over 130 employees, has achieved Planet Mark certification. 

This is Fiera Real Estate Canada’s first year of business carbon footprint reporting and Planet Mark certification. Fiera Real Estate Canada’s total carbon footprint in the year ending December 2020 was 113.0 tCO2e. Fiera Real Estate Canada’s total carbon per employee in the year ending 2020 was 2.2 tCO2e.  Since certifying to Planet Mark, the company has set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually.

Understanding and measuring its carbon footprint is the first step in identifying ways to minimise its impact on the planet. Over the next year, the company will be working towards reducing its carbon emissions and sharing its journey with its community to inspire others. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, Fiera Real Estate will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hope to encourage continual improvements within its community.

Steve Malkin
Founder and CEO
Planet Mark
“I am delighted to welcome Fiera Real Estate Canada to the Planet Mark community. Globally, real estate is a huge contributor to global emissions, and Fiera Real Estate Canada recognised its ability to create change at scale. The dedication to more sustainable practice across the whole team is admirable. Fiera is placing itself as a global leader in sustainable real estate – well done to everyone involved.”
Peter McFarlance
Senior Vice President of Investment Management Operations
Fieldfisher
“At Fiera Real Estate we recognize the role we, our funds and our investments play in supporting a decarbonizing world. In 2021, we partnered with Planet Mark to better understand the business’s carbon footprint and were awarded the Planet Mark Year 2021 Business Certification, which represents a key milestone in our commitment to environmental excellence and supports our transition to net zero carbon. We believe that real change comes from working together, so we look forward to continuing our journey with Planet Mark to reduce our impact and to use our success in this space to encourage others to do the same.”

Certification story

Fiera Real Estate Canada integrates environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into its approach to investment management, in order to mitigate risk and help drive long-term value creation. Fiera Real Estate is a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment and has nearly 2 million square feet of LEED* certified property. The company also has clear five-year reduction targets for energy, water and waste.

Real estate accounts for 40% of the world’s energy consumption. If the world is to reach its climate targets, the whole supply chain involved in real estate must come together to reduce emissions. Fortunately, low-carbon solutions often provide a number of business benefits. Sustainable buildings are also often healthy buildings, boosting the health, wellness and productivity of their occupiers.   

Future targets

Reduce carbon footprint by 5% annually

As part of the Planet Mark certification, Fiera Real Estate Canada has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
