Kim MacDonald, Shannex VP of Property and Support Services accepts the 2023 Carbon Hero Award

In December, Shannex received the prestigious Carbon Hero Award at BOMA Nova Scotia’s Annual Holiday Luncheon. The award was presented in recognition of our outstanding commitment to environmental stewardship and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. We are proud of this accolade which not only commends our efforts, but also recognizes our leadership work in the fight against climate change.  

We believe that everyone has a role to play in protecting the environment and that sustainable actions are more impactful when done together. We are the first Canadian Seniors’ Living Organization to receive ISO 50001 Certification and, in 2020, the organization implemented the Ecopilot® AI for HVAC software in seven communities.

Based on the success of this work, Shannex will install the AI solution across 24 more buildings, an ambitious project that is projected to save 3,830,000 KWh – or the equivalent of powering nearly 350 homes for an entire year! 

Learn how Shannex is committed to protecting the environment with an action plan that transforms the way we prioritize sustainability.
