Building – Design, Development & Management

Dan Rames

Director, Energy Management, CAPREIT

Apartment buildings have huge potential when it comes to reducing an area’s carbon footprint. Through retrofits, individual unit metering, and tenant engagement, Dan has helped CAPREIT lead the way in sustainable living. Energy investments in one building alone delivered savings of more than 42,000 m3 per year in gas consumption and facilitated winning a first-place sustainability ranking (among 200+ buildings) on the Tower Renewal Benchmark. Water and recycling are priorities as well, with smart data technology earning the company a win in Toronto Mayor John Tory’s Towering Challenge. Dan’s work not only improves the tenant experience, but also builds on the company’s internal culture of conservation and is clear proof that sustainability makes a lot of “cents”.
