Employee comfort and wellbeing is always a priority at CIBC Mellon. By moving our corporate headquarters to 1 York Street in Toronto, we were able to combine aspects that enhance both employee wellbeing and environmental sustainability. Our team cares about the environment, whether it be the environment found in our office or in nature. We have realized a number of environmental sustainability benefits since moving to the new location, including:
18 per cent reduction in light energy
46.79 per cent reduction in water use
87.6 per cent of waste diversion from the landfill
41.9 per cent of construction materials included recycled content
91 per cent of the wood-based products used in construction were Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified
61 per cent of the materials used in building the office were manufactured regionally
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
CIBC Mellon’s Toronto headquarters is pursuing a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. LEED is a third-party program that authenticates that a building adheres to strategies that enhance and improve human and environmental health.
