Presima is a proud partner in the voluntary emission reductions for the PRI in Person 2014 delegates

In partnership with Ownership Capital (Amsterdam) and Presima (Montréal), PRI has acquired voluntary emission reductions to offset the carbon footprint of the air travel incurred by PRI in Person 2014 delegates.

 

The voluntary emission reductions have been generated by the Social Housing Retrofit Project which was implemented by Office Municipal d’Habitation de Montréal (OMHM). The project is publicly listed on the CSA CleanProjects Registry and has been 3rd party verified under ISO-14064-2 by Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton LLP. This project utilizes new and energy efficient technologies which replace inefficient gas boilers, piping systems, and allow for the fuel switching of heat generation systems from natural gas to electricity.
