Since its founding, First Capital has maintained its focus on providing buyers and other stakeholders with livable and sustainable communities. They emphasize proximity to public transit when selecting new sites, and preserve the surrounding natural environment wherever possible. Additionally, the company has a history of helping create vibrant communities throughout Canada, doing so through public realm improvements and pedestrian-friendly streetscapes. This focus on livability has led to First Capital establishing a reputation as one of the country’s leaders in sustainability and innovation.
Under the guidance of CEO Adam Paul, First Capital has been at the forefront of the development industry’s push for sustainability. In 2018 alone, the company saw the construction of six new LEED-certified buildings, as well as a 13% decrease in greenhouse gas emissions since 2014. In the interest of transparency, the company also publishes a yearly Sustainability Report. However, First Capital recognizes that thriving communities need more than energy-efficient lighting and plumbing in order to thrive. In addition, the company has also sponsored numerous artistic competitions in partnership with local organizations. In some cases, the winners will have their work displayed on First Capital properties-a huge opportunity for increased visibility.
