About the event

Daniels is a purpose-driven real estate developer, and builds inclusive and sustainable communities to create a better future for all. Real estate development affects the way people live and shapes how communities come together, and Daniels has spent over 39 years investing in community development, affordable housing, food security, arts and culture, and sustainable building practices.

Daniels has recently refocused their approach to sustainable development, and are on  a mission to decarbonize the real estate development industry in the GTA by focusing on the whole life carbon emissions of the homes they build. By focusing on whole life carbon, they can quantify the true scale of the  impact of the development process, and take accountability by quantifying, disclosing, and taking steps to drastically reduce our emissions.

In early 2023, Daniels published their Decarbonization Roadmap, which measured and disclosed a baseline level of performance while establishing emission reduction targets and commitments. Most importantly, it provides an actionable pathway to decarbonization while challenging what sustainable building truly means in the context of global climate goals.

This presentation will cover Daniels’ findings in developing their Decarbonization Roadmap, key next steps on deploying it, and how they are shifting the corporate mindset from treating sustainability as philosophical value into a value-add that drives good business.
