Francisca Quinn was proud to join a group of leading sustainability and real estate professionals in contributing content to Chapter 5, Sustainability in Real Estate, of “Canadian Commercial Real Estate: Theory, Practice, Strategy”. The textbook was published in 2016 by the Real Property Association of Canada (REALPac) and written by its CEO, S. Michael Brooks. It is the first comprehensive literature on Canadian commercial real estate.
Chapter 5 provides a thorough overview of the evolving context of sustainability in commercial real estate. Specifically, the chapter explains material sustainability impacts of the real estate industry, green building certification and sustainability disclosure.
The textbook is currently used at Ryerson University in its real estate project capstone course.
