Letter From The CEO

Why Sustainability Matters

Triovest has a bright future, as we grow our business and deliver greater value to our clients by realizing the full potential of the assets and portfolios under our management.

Our Priorities

Our business, as well as stakeholder expectations, is constantly evolving. At Triovest, we regularly engage with stakeholders to better understand the sustainability topics that are most relevant to them and to our business. Our 2020 Materiality Matrix presents 32 distinct topics with each assigned to one of four sustainability categories – Environmental, Social, Governance and Financial – and ranked in terms of importance to both internal and external stakeholders.

Employees Environment Clients Communities


The more than 500 employees who work on Triovest’s behalf are our greatest strength and essential to our long-term success. We strive for a workplace that is healthy and safe, engages employees through communications and feedback mechanisms, supports careers and lifelong learning opportunities, promotes diversity and inclusion, and removes barriers so everyone can reach their full potential.

Across Triovest’s Canada-wide commercial real estate portfolio of more than 400 properties, we are focused on environmentally sustainable building design and operations. Triovest’s efforts to minimize environmental impacts and take action include our climate resiliency and healthy building initiatives and our three-year targets to reduce waste, energy and water use, and greenhouse gas emissions.

Triovest’s clients entrust us to strengthen the financial security of their assets and provide long-term value appreciation by managing their commercial properties effectively and responsibly. Integrating sustainability – such as green lease clauses and sustainability-specific requirements in tenant fit-out programs – into our asset management process is a key aspect of creating value for our clients.

The nature of our business offers us the opportunity to connect with communities across Canada every day. Along with local and national partnerships with community organizations that positively influence lives and strengthen the communities in which we operate, Triovest gives back to communities through a Corporate Giving Program and by supporting the charitable efforts of our employees.
