Corporate Sustainability

A Message from the President & Chief Executive Officer

At Artis, we believe that promoting and investing in environmentally sustainable assets makes good business sense. We are pleased to release our second annual Sustainability Report, demonstrating our commitment to sustainable practices that ensure the long-term success and efficiency of our assets and helps the company to attract and retain the best tenants and employees.

As one of Canada’s most prominent landlords, we are responsible for setting a high standard of sustainable practices and demonstrating the importance of environmental care and protection for our investors, tenants, employees and communities. At Artis, we create a culture that values and prioritizes corporate sustainability, and we consider it our mandate to invest in, develop and manage buildings in an environmentally prudent and resource efficient manner.

To measure and maintain this standard of sustainability, we value three globally recognized programs, LEED®, BOMA BEST and Energy Star and consider certification by one or more of these programs important to our asset investment and management strategy.

At the ground level, our investment in our people and community demonstrates and reinforces our commitment to sustainable practices and the community, including education and development programs, charitable events and philanthropy.

I look forward to sharing our progress and the exceptional results of our corporate sustainability program throughout the year.


Armin Martens, P. Eng., M.B.A.
