Along with twenty-six other QuadReal properties, /SFC is among the first buildings in Canada to certify with ENERGY STAR®, which represents proven, verified energy performance over a 12-month period. In fact, ENERGY STAR® certified buildings perform in the top 25 percent of similar buildings nationwide! ENERGY STAR® certification is delivered by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
