Sustainability

As part of our commitment to adopting innovative solutions, we're striving to be a leader in sustainability.

Building green

Our central office is located in Morguard’s Translink Logistics Centre – a multi-tenant industrial complex, comprised of four buildings designed for warehousing, distribution, logistics and transportation.

Construction of the Translink Logistics Centre is following Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) principles.

What is LEED?

LEED is a framework and rating system for green building design, focusing on:

  • human health
  • environmental health
  • water efficiency
  • materials selection
  • indoor environmental quality

Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED helps building owners and operators follow sustainable practices and use resources efficiently.

The Translink Logistics Centre and LEED

GTH offices are located in the Translink Logistics Centre, which is targetting LEED Gold Certification.

This means that the Translink Logistics Centre:

  • Uses 80% less energy than the average prairie warehouse.
  • Has a carbon footprint that is 75% smaller than the average prairie warehouse.
  • Requires lower operating costs, by saving energy, water, and other resources.

GTH offices are also targeting LEED certification. Our goal is to:

  • Create a healthier, cleaner environment, for more satisfied occupants and employees.
  • Demonstrate our commitment to the environment and our future.
  • Lower operating costs.
  • Save energy, water, and other resources.
  • Reduce our carbon footprint.

Research shows that LEED-certified office spaces result in happier, more productive employees, all while helping to sustain the environment:
