BOMA Canada is excited to announce the first BOMA BEST certified building in Mexico. Torre Origami at 1458 Avenida Insurgentes Sur, Benito Juárez, CDMX, managed by Central de Inmuebles, has received a Silver certification. It now joins the 2,900+ BOMA BEST Certified Sustainable Buildings across North America.
Since 2017, BOMA Canada has been working closely with BOMA Mexico to offer buildings in Mexico an opportunity to assess and improve their environmental performance using the BOMA BEST program. “We’ve had such high take-up domestically that we’re recognizing that the next frontier lies outside the borders of this country,” said Benjamin Shinewald, President and Chief Executive Officer of BOMA Canada.
The BOMA BEST Sustainable Buildings Certification program is dedicated to assisting property managers and building operators improve their buildings’ environmental performance. To do this, buildings are evaluated individually within a framework that critically assesses ten key areas of environmental performance and management including energy, water, air, purchasing and waste.
“Being the first to certify in Mexico offered some unique challenges, but our team was more than up for the task. We found BOMA BEST to be the perfect tool to monitor and assess Torre Origami’s environmental impact and show us how we can improve.” said Carlos Salame, COO at Desarrolladora CINSA. “With the support of BOMA Canada and BOMA Mexico, we are looking forward to continuing to build on this achievement and further improve the sustainability of our buildings across Mexico”
