Concert Infrastructure works in close support of the Concert Communities Works initiative.
At Concert we are deeply invested in improving the lives of the Canadians in the communities where we partner to deliver and manage critical public infrastructure. This philosophy extends to a corporate giving program, investment in trades training programs and other philanthropic endeavors, donating staff time—as well as money and resources—to socially conscious community projects.
Concert Infrastructure works closely with its industry and government partners to ensure that defined project sustainability objectives are met or exceeded. Historically on our projects this has included delivering defined design and system requirements, Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, BOMA Best certification and infrastructure green bond financings.
A detailed Sustainability Framework outlines Concert’s specific commitments and guides our business decisions. From outlining our goals to breaking down our short-term objectives into measurable steps, the Framework holds us accountable as we tackle sustainability from many angles.
