LEAP CONFERENCE AND AWARDS

For the past three years, Quinn & Partners has supported the Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan’s (HOOPP) Leadership in Environmental Advancement Program (LEAP). LEAP convenes senior representatives from HOOPP Real Estate’s investment and management partner companies and consists of a conference, innovation pitch and awards ceremony all centred around sustainability leadership.

After attending LEAP in 2015, executives from one of HOOPP’s management companies were motivated to commit to a sustainability strategy for the company which is in place today. In 2016, that company set energy reduction targets for all its properties – across all client mandates.

LEAP has been recognized by several prominent awards, including being named a Clean50 Top15 Project for 2016. LEAP also won the NAIOP REX Green Award of the Year for 2016.

GRI REPORTING

The Quinn & Partners team has advanced knowledge and experience of the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Standards. This reporting framework is used by thousands of reporters in over 90 countries, making GRI the world’s most widely used standard on sustainability disclosure. We believe that alignment with GRI Standards indicates best-in-class sustainability reporting.

The foundation of GRI-reporting is a comprehensive stakeholder engagement process (also known as materiality assessment), which is used to determine what sustainability issues are most important for a particular organization.

We have supported clients with materiality assessments and compliance with GRI G4 Guidelines and the most recent GRI Standards.

Triovest’s reports have been recognized as industry best practice. The Global Compact Network Canada recognized Triovest’s 2016 Sustainability Report as a 2017 Best Peer Reviewed Sustainability Report. Triovest’s stakeholder research was featured in BOMA Canada’s 2015 BOMA BEST National Green Building Report. The inaugural sustainability report was a runner up in the international Corporate Register 2017 CR Reporting Awards.

In 2017, Quinn & Partner team members supported Inter Pipeline with their inaugural Sustainability Report. The report makes GRI-referenced claims to help stakeholders compare the company’s performance with industry peers.

SUSTAINABILITY REPORTING

Organizations do not benefit from keeping sustainability achievements “their best kept secret”. Quinn & Partners provides sustainability reporting advisory and production services. For public disclosures, we follow global standards, such as GRI, and support adherence to other leading frameworks such as PRI, SASB, CDP, DJSI, GRESB and the Taskforce for Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

In 2012, the Cadillac Fairview flagship office complex, the Toronto-Dominion Centre (TDC), became the first individual North American property to produce a stand-alone sustainability report. Our team has supported TDC with its sustainability communications since its start.

TDC sustainability reporting centres on how the company creates value for its tenants’ financial, human, real and brand capital and it has been recognized at industry conferences and in the media.

Quinn & Partners is proud to be a trusted advisor in TDC’s pursuit of sustainability leadership and innovation.
