Going Green

Kingsway is dedicated to being exemplary stewards of our community and the environment. In 2013, we have received BOMA BESt Level 2 certification.

BOMA (the Building Owners & Managers Association) is the leading environmental certification program for commercial buildings. The BOMA BESt program sets national benchmarks for sustainability in building operations.

To that end, Kingsway, with the help of a Tenant advisory committee, meets regularly to discuss issues such as recycling, energy efficiency and water conservation. Working together, we can make a difference.

We had the greatest reduction in overall consumption levels across the Oxford retail portfolio, and as such have received Oxford Retial Performance Award in 2013.

In 2011, Kingsway Mall along with the City of Edmonton became the first mall to partner together on a Waste Management Program. We are now diverting over 86% of our waste from the landfills.

Through parkade lighting retrofits and other efficient electrical upgrades, Kingsway Mall has achieved a 30% reduction of Green House Gas emissions since 2005.

For 7 consecutive years Kingsway Mall has reduced its water use, resulting in a 40% reduction in consumption since 2005. This was achieved through equipment retrofits and eco-friendly landscaping.

In 2010, Kingsway Mall was the first mall to assign dedicated parking spaces to Hybrid vehicles.
