Kingsway is dedicated to being exemplary stewards of our community and the environment. We’re proud to announce that Kingsway Mall has scored 100% on the Oxford Properties 2019 Global Sustainability Scorecard – the only shopping centre in Oxford Properties portfolio to do so.
In October 2017, we received the BOMA BEST Gold Certification. BOMA (the Building Owners & Managers Association) is the leading environmental certification program for commercial buildings. The BOMA Best program sets national benchmarks for sustainability in building operations.
Kingsway, with the help of a Tenant advisory committee, meets regularly to discuss issues such as recycling, energy efficiency and water conservation. Working together, we can make a difference.
We had the greatest reduction in overall consumption levels across the Oxford retail portfolio, and as such have received the Oxford Retail Performance Award in 2013.
In 2011, Kingsway Mall along with the City of Edmonton became the first mall to partner together on a Waste Management Program. We are now diverting over 86% of our waste from landfills. In 2010, Kingsway Mall was the first mall to assign dedicated parking spaces to Hybrid vehicles.
Through parkade lighting retrofits and other efficient electrical upgrades, Kingsway Mall has achieved a 30% reduction of Green House Gas emissions since 2005. For 7 consecutive years, Kingsway Mall has also reduced its water use, resulting in a 40% reduction in consumption since 2005. This was achieved through equipment retrofits and eco-friendly landscaping.
