PM Trudeau visits TELUS Garden – one of the greenest buildings in North America
At the launch of the Smart Prosperity initiative held at TELUS Garden, and attended by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, TELUS garden was awarded Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum certification by the Canada Green Building Council (CAGBC).
“TELUS continues to push the boundaries on sustainability through its focus on innovation, and that is even more evident today as we present LEED Platinum certification for the TELUS Garden development,” said Thomas Mueller, President and CEO of Canada Green Building Council. “This certification represents much more than an environmental accomplishment; it is a compelling example of the leadership in the corporate sector and of the opportunity that exists for business to contribute to the global movement towards sustainable buildings and green cities, health and well-being for all.”
“The LEED Platinum certification embodies our commitment and dedication to create a world class development where the sustainable design not only mirrors the culture and values of TELUS team members but also the tenants and businesses who have now become a welcomed part of this environmentally conscious community,” said Ian Gillespie, President of Westbank. “We’re eager to extend that culture to the future residents who will call TELUS Garden home as we complete the residential tower over the next few months.”
