Guided by our environmental, economical and social responsibilities; Macro Properties holds the highest standards of transparency and integrity.
Just as we invest in real estate, we invest in our responsibility to consider our actions and decisions on a day to day basis to ensure our long term performance and operations affect the environment in a positive aspect. By being mindful with each move we make, Macro Properties is consistently reducing its footprint by minimizing waste, water pollution, air emissions, promoting recycling and utilizing natural resources and energy efficiently.
We strive toward making energy efficient changes at all of our properties including building commissioning, lighting retrofits and heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) retrofits to meet our goal of operating high performance green buildings.
As construction projects associated with developing green buildings transition from being an exception to being recognized as the standard, Macro Properties continues to follow the emerging green economy trends.
Our short and long term strategies are distributed among our staff, vendors and contractors across Canada as we continue to educate ourselves and progress toward providing a way of living and working forever on the parts of the planet we operate.
To keep up with the challenges of our growing business, we need to attract and retain motivated, productive employees who are well versed in their skill-set, and committed to both our short and long-term goals.
Here's how we build a sustainable, skilled and competitive workforce:
- Offer wages that include health care, benefits, skills training and tuition reimbursement
- Provide opportunities for advancement, promoting from within when qualified candidates are available
- Provide equal opportunities in employment, promotions, wages, benefits and terms and conditions of employment
- Provide and maintain a safe, healthy work environment
- Communicate our goals and expectations clearly
- Elicit and exchange employee feedback through meetings and reviews
- Utilizing local resources and businesses
We are consistently encouraging a positive impact on the environment through all of our activities, in our communities, and with our tenants and employees. In all of our short and long-term goals, sustainability will always be at the core of our business principals and practices.
