This achievement is aligned with the broader effort to create a more sustainable and energy efficient campus in Chalk River. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is one of the most popular “green” building certification programs used worldwide.  LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building was designed and built using strategies aimed at achieving high performance in key areas of human and environmental health, location and transportation, sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality. It includes a set of rating systems for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of buildings, homes, and neighbourhoods which guide building owners and operations towards environmentally responsibility, sustainability and energy efficiency.“We are proud of the work we are undertaking to build a more sustainable Chalk River campus,” said Mark Lesinski, CNL President and CEO. “The Harriet Brooks Building, one of only a handful of LEED certified laboratories in Canada, is just one example of the many projects currently underway at CNL which are helping to reduce our environmental footprint.”The Harriet Brooks Building incorporates the following environmentally-sound features:SiteHeat island effect reduced by using a white roof and white concrete pavementExterior lights designed to prevent “uplighting”Captured rain water for use in washroomsWater EfficiencyReduced water by over 30 per cent by using low flow fixturesUsed drought tolerant landscaping to reduce the need for wateringEnergy and AtmosphereReduced energy consumption by over 20 per cent compared to a similar standard-designed buildingZero use of non-toxic, non-flammable refrigerants in HVAC systemsMaterials and ResourcesIncluded areas for storage and collection of recyclables83 per cent of construction waste was diverted away from landfillControllable lighting system including occupancy sensorsIn addition to the Harriet Brooks Building, through the redevelopment of the Chalk River campus, CNL invested significantly in projects aligned with the organization’s commitment to environmental protection.  The Chalk River campus has reduced emissions by more than 30 per cent since transitioning the campus’ heating to natural gas in 2018; plans for three new conventional buildings, an investment of more than $100 million, incorporate energy efficiency or sustainable building materials; and, CNL has constructed a groundwater management system to better protect the Ottawa River by managing rainfall runoff.“It is important to our organization, to our staff and to our many stakeholders that we are delivering our work in a manner which places a high priority on environmental stewardship, says Lesinski. “This is part of our Environment Policy and applies to all aspects of CNL’s activities. CNL has set sustainability objectives and targets for energy efficiency, clean energy utilization, waste management and conservation of resources to support continual improvement of our performance, and ensure we are respecting the natural environment we are so grateful to enjoy here in Chalk River.”To learn more about CNL’s plans for site revitalization of the Chalk River campus visit www.cnl.ca.About CNLCanadian Nuclear Laboratories is a world leader in nuclear science and technology offering unique capabilities and solutions across a wide range of industries.

Exceptional ceiling heights, indoor bike storage and a private rooftop terrace, with an adjacent green roof, are just a few of the unique features of the space,” adds Eric Cordon, Associate at Canderel and the project lead.Jennifer Chayes, Technical Fellow and Managing Research Director of the New England, NYC and Montreal research labs, shared her enthusiasm for the new site. “I’m thrilled that the Microsoft Research Montreal lab will be relocating to the Mile-Ex area.

I’m genuinely excited by the prospect of the cutting-edge innovation that will emerge from this extraordinary environment."“The AI research community in Montreal is constantly collaborating and exchanging ideas,” says Wayne Heuff, Executive Vice-President and Managing Director of Claridge Real Estate. “With other groundbreaking AI labs moving into Mile-Ex, like the new Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms (MILA), everyone benefits.

Finance Attitude - 5 Crucial Things to Consider Before You Buy a Stock
5 Crucial Things to Consider Before You Buy a Stock
Investing in stock is an excellent way to build substantial wealth. However, stock prices are very volatile which makes investing highly risky and can even lead to massive losses particularly if investors are not keen enough before they buy a stock. It is imperative to do a thorough research before you place your hard earned cash on a company stock. Here are 5 things to consider before you buy a stock: 1.    The Company’s Mission, Vision, Goals, and Objectives Find out the business that the company is involved in and what they intend to achieve in the long-run. Make efforts to understand the company’s mission and also avoid investing in what you don’t understand. You can search the internet and the company’s web page so as to gather all the information available regarding the company mission, vision, and objectives. You can also get such information from the company’s brochure and other publications. A stock value of a company with a viable mission and vision is likely to grow and so it is less risky to buy. 2.    Find Out the Company’s Financial Performance Companies publish their financial statements quarterly and yearly and investors can check the company’s earnings and whether the company is making substantial profits. Find out how much net income the company reported in dollars and in per-share earnings. Find out the company’s earnings history by checking past news stories and company’s quarterly statements. It is also important to check whether there are any red flags that can make you question the company’s integrity. Find out if the company has a history of steady earnings growth or the earnings are usually volatile. Find out the future growth possibility of the company. Analyze the company’s balance sheet to find out the company’s liabilities versus assets and check if the company incurs huge loans. Check how much the company is spending on research and development and how large its inventory levels are. Check the 10-k report that a company has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Also, check the 10-Q report which is similar to 10-k only that it is required on a quarterly basis. 3.    The Stock Valuation The company’s valuation is determined by price to earnings and price to sales. It’s important to find a company whose earnings are growing exponentially and also check the value the market pays for that growth and the prospect of future growth. Investors also need to consider how much they are paying for a stock. 4.    Find the Company’s Competitors Every company has a host of other competitors unless it’s an industry dominated by one company. A company may be in an industry that is fragmented where even the biggest player controls less than 10% of the market. It is crucial to check the company’s position in the industry by finding out if it’s a bigger player or a small but growing niche player and whether it has the biggest market share in its industry. It is also important to check the international competition from foreign firms in the industry. Find out whether the company’s competitive position is sustainable. 5.    Check the Company’s Executive Management There are numerous ways to find out about the leadership of a company, their background, and the company’s history. You can research on the company management y searching online sources on the internet and also by checking the company’s main website. You can also find out more information from their financial statements that are periodically released to the public and from the trade publications. Bottom line Any serious investor put enough efforts in digging up for any information that determines the success of the company that they intend to invest in. I hope this guide will help you to make an informed decision.
