OTTAWA - MHPM Project Leaders passed a milestone towards integrating sustainable practices into its business operations today, with the release of its first annual corporate sustainability report.
“As a company that provides project management, construction management and advisory services to property owners, sustainability is integral to our business,” says Franklin Holtforster, President and CEO.
“Climate and social changes – from the increasing frequency of extreme weather events to expectations that we engage the community in business decisions – affect our operations in myriad ways. It’s clear that we must all do all we can to integrate sustainability into our daily work.”
This is true for both MHPM and our clients, Holtforster stresses. “The forces of change translate into, for example, demand for net zero energy and low carbon buildings, the use of passive and regenerative design principles and more emphasis on measuring building performance.”
MHPM’s corporate sustainability report evaluates MHPM’s impact on the environment and the community, its transportation practices and workplace policies. The findings reveal areas for improvement and provide a benchmark against which to measure future performance.
Initiatives slated for the remainder of 2012 and for 2013 include plans to:
- Improve our approach to energy data collection in our owned and leased facilities;
- Set meaningful targets to reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions; and,
- Establish employee green teams in all offices to continue the dialogue about sustainability and to provide regional representation for the implementation of sustainability initiatives.

Since 1989, we have successfully executed more than 5,000 facility projects with capital values exceeding $2 billion dollars annually.
