Recycling

Product which flows through Devonshire Mall is carefully examined as to its recyclable potential. As with all shopping centres, the diversity of waste produced on site is akin to handling the waste of a micro city. Household chemicals, biological waste, wooden skids, plastic, cardboard, packaging (non-perishable and consumer) and construction waste are just a few of the products that Devonshire Mall sorts on an ongoing basis. Using local partners, all materials are handled properly and efficiently, ensuring accountability on an annual basis.

Working with our centre’s management team, retailers and local community partners, we have had great success in our eWaste Recycling Day, alkaline battery and cell phone recycling programs diverting materials from landfills. Our recycling efforts demonstrate our commitment to sustainability and green planning and certainly sets the tone for our retailers and our community. Every year, these initiatives help divert a considerable amount of recyclable material from landfill sites.

Green Power

Devonshire Mall is supporting clean, green energy through Bullfrog Power. As a company, Ivanhoe Cambridge is among the largest supporters of renewable energy through Bullfrog Power in Canada. Ivanhoe Cambridge is currently listed at the Vanguard level on the bullfrogpowered Green Index, using over 20,000 MWh (annual megawatt hours of green power purchased). By choosing Bullfrog Power for 50% of its common areas, Devonshire Mall is reducing its environmental impact and helping to create a cleaner world for its community and future generations.

Energy Efficiency

Devonshire Mall strives to attain higher energy efficiency standards through environmental building control systems, environmentally friendly lighting, efficient heating solutions and other initiatives.

Environmental Compliance

Through its environmental management program, Devonshire Mall closely monitors environmental compliance in our Centre. We have also strengthened the language in our standard lease document, which outlines tenants’ obligations with regard to environmental legislation.
