150 King Street West was recently recognized for its efforts during CivicAction’s Race to Reduce, one of the largest smart energy office challenges in the world.
Our building received a Building Performance Award for Greatest Energy Reduction (2011-2014) with a percentage reduction of 18.97 per cent.
The Race to Reduce was a friendly four-year corporate challenge, with 196 buildings participating within the GTA representing more than 69 million square feet or 42 per cent of the commercial office space. Overall, the challenge achieved a 12.1 per cent collective energy reduction, surpassing the program’s four year target of 10 per cent. The 193 ekWh in energy savings, is equivalent to taking 4,200 cars off the road and putting $13.7 million back into office landlords’ and tenants’ pockets.
Well-deserved congratulations are extended to the following tenants who joined the Race to Reduce. Thank you for your participation and partnership in conserving energy usage.
