"Sustainability is woven into the fabric of our organization, and as an industry leader in commercial real estate, we pride ourselves on having the unique ability to build and transform communities in a responsible way,” said Arv Gupta, Sr VP of National Operations, Cadillac Fairview.

If you’ve ever worked in a building where your office is so cold that you’re typing in gloves while your neighbor’s space is so hot that they’re sweating, you know that climate control in large buildings is sometimes unreliable.

In the newest episode of Tomorrow’s World Today, field reporter Tamara Krinsky heads to Cadillac Fairview headquarters in Toronto where she learns how they are using natural resources to help with climate control.

“At Cadillac Fairview, sustainability is woven into the fabric of our organization, and as an industry leader in commercial real estate, we pride ourselves on having the unique ability to build and transform communities in a responsible way,” said Arv Gupta, Senior Vice President of National Operations, Cadillac Fairview. “We’re thrilled to be featured on Tomorrow’s World Today to highlight some of the leading-edge programs and partnerships we’ve implemented to promote a sustainable future.”

Krinsky learns about Enwave Energy’s Deep Lake Water Cooling system, which transports the cold water from the bottom of Lake Ontario through a filtration plant and then to a heat transfer station to extract the energy to cool buildings in Downtown Toronto. She also discusses Cadillac Fairview’s geoexchange retrofit initiative, which collects heat and stores it underground to be used over in the Winter. What is unique about their initiatives are that they are existing building retrofits. The tenant spaces were not affected from the start to finish of these projects, and in return the projects substantially lowered the building’s operational carbon footprint and reduced utility cost. On top of learning about sustainable climate control technology, she also discovered an innovative on-site waste management technology, which drastically reduces the environmental footprint of some of the busiest offices and retail spaces in Canada.

To learn more about how Cadillac Fairview is using Deep Lake Water Cooling for cooling and geothermal energy for heating large buildings, tune in for an all-new episode of Tomorrow’s World Today on Saturday, December 12 at 8:30 am ET/PT on Science Channel and Sunday, December 20 at 6:30 am on Discovery.
