This achievement is in </span><span style="font-size:1em;background-color:transparent;color:inherit;">recognition of the shopping centre's </span><span style="font-size:1em;background-color:transparent;color:inherit;">excellence in energy and environmental management.</span></p><p>Platinum certification is awarded to buildings that have met the BOMA BEST Practices. Throughout the certification process in 2020, the Coquitlam Centre, which is celebrating its forty-second year in August, had to overcome several challenges due to the age of the building while implementing the updates. Their persistence was awarded with this impressive recognition. </p><p>Some key 2020 updates and programs include:</p><ul><li><span style="background-color:transparent;color:inherit;">Coquitlam Centre's recycling program successfully diverted a rate of 53.05% of waste from the landfill. This equates to 413.04 metric tonnes, or 4,878 trees, 497,621 litres of oil and 6.8 million litres of water.</span></li><li><span style="background-color:transparent;color:inherit;"></span>The center worked with its recycling partners to increase the variety of items that can be recycled and make it easier for retailers to recycle glass, metal and plastic containers.</li><li>In October 2019, the centre began accepting used gift cards at Guest Services for recycling. Up until the Spring of 2020, over 3,000 gift cards had been recycled.</li><li>Two honeybee hives were installed on the Coquitlam Centre's roof in May of 2020. At their peak in mid-July, the hives were home to between 80,000 and 100,000 honeybees.<br></li><li>Online paperless forms were introduced that allow the Guest Services Team and customers to fill out forms such as Stroller Rentals and Release Forms digitally instead of using paper forms. </li></ul><p>Congratulations to the Coquitlam Centre team for this high achievement and its commitment to the environment. <br></p><p><br></p>

Longstanding and new initiatives to empower and celebrate women's achievements remained crucial during the pandemic.</span></p><p>Over the years, International Women's Day has continued to be a milestone at Morguard. In each celebration, we challenge stereotypes, fight bias and broaden perceptions about the role women play in society while celebrating their social, economic, cultural and political achievements. The 2020 event hosted by Morguard brought employees together to help create a gender-equal world through education and open discussions about the celebration's meaning and ways to encourage and honour women beyond the day in March.</p><p>Morguard has also found innovative ways to support women across communities. Initiatives such as BeYou empower and educate girls and young women across Canada, encouraging them to celebrate their growth, diversity and self-worth. To expand our work supporting women, our teams at 77 Bloor St. W., 65 Overlea Blvd. and 200 Yorkland Blvd. in Toronto donated honey and honey-derived goods produced at their bee hotels to The Redwood, a women's and children's shelter that received 150 beeswax candles and 300 lip balms and soap bars in late 2020.</p><p>Empowering women continues to be a priority that we will be proud to continue in 2021.<br></p><p><br></p>

Two upcoming beehives will also be set up at Coquitlam Centre in British Columbia for Spring 2021.</p><p>Ottawa currently has 10 urban beehives across 9 properties in operation. These bees can visit trees, plants and flowers within a 5 km radius of their hive. An urban hive can produce about 10 kg of honey each year. </p><p>To celebrate our second year of working to build more ecological communities, we recently gifted the honey from the beehives to the tenants at our Ottawa sites. We also donated several cases of honey to the Parkdale Food Centre, a not-for-profit charity that helps build healthy neighbourhoods through good food and social connections.</p><p>Morguard's bees initiative is part of our Sustainable Morguard program that focuses on the environmental, social and governance ("ESG") issues that affect the communities where we operate.
