Every day, we make choices. Some of those choices have an impact on our families and communities; some may reach around the world. At Toronto Suites, our goal is to foster and enhance sustainable business practices throughout our organization, particularly in the areas of the environment and community investment both at home and abroad.
At Toronto Suites, we strive to reduce our green footprint by increasing recycling, reducing energy use, and eliminating unnecessary paper production wherever possible. In recent years we have outfitted all apartments and common areas with energy efficient lighting.
In 2010 our HVAC system was also overhauled to use the latest green technology, including heat pumps and heat recovery mechanisms.
