HOOPP honours property managers for “green” leadership at Ottawa ceremony

The Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP), a large real estate investor, with over $8 billion in assets and more than 180 properties in Canada and around the world, honoured five of its property managers and three tenants for excellence in energy performance and environmental sustainability at a ceremony last night in Ottawa.

The annual LEAP (Leadership in Environmental Advancement Program) awards were presented at 150 Elgin Street, a property co-owned by HOOPP and Morguard Corporation. Lisa Lafave, HOOPP’s Senior Portfolio Manager, Real Estate, said that “by building healthy, energy efficient and high-performing buildings, we are delivering a long-term benefit to our tenants and to HOOPP’s members.”

As a long-term investor, HOOPP’s real estate group has established a sustainability program designed around industry best practices to enhance property values and manage portfolio risks by investing in and developing healthy, resource efficient, and high-quality buildings. This is ideal for a pension plan serving 286,000 active and retired healthcare workers.

HOOPP has more than $51.6 billion in net assets and is fully funded.
