Strong oversight and accountability underpin our commitment to ESG excellence. RioCan manages sustainability with a collaborative team led by the Director of Sustainability and overseen by the SVP, Asset Management.

Our Sustainability Council provides regular oversight in the business planning process, as do our Board of Trustees. In 2019, the Board expanded the mandate of the Nominating and Governance Committee (“NGC”) beyond reviewing the annual sustainability plan and performance to include ESG oversight. As a member of REALPAC’s ESG Committee, RioCan participates in conversations to shape the future of sustainability in our industry.
