Oxford’s Sustainable Intelligence Scorecard covers buildings that are directly owned and
managed by Oxford (includes solely and jointly owned properties).

This portfolio of buildings includes 68% Office, 18% Retail, and 14% Residential (based on 2009
square footage). Regionally, the portfolio includes 59% Ontario, 22% Alberta, 11% Quebec, 4%
British Columbia, and 4% in Manitoba / Nova Scotia combined (based on 2009 square footage).

The principles of relevance, completeness, consistency, accuracy and transparency were
considered in presenting the scorecard metrics below. Consistent with these principles, and that
of continual improvement, some changes have been made to 2005-2008 numbers as a result of
improved data and/or estimates.

NOTES:
1. This indicator aligns with Oxford’s Target 2012 commitment – a 20% reduction in direct (Scope 1) & energy indirect
   (Scope 2) greenhouse gas emissions, on a per square foot basis by 2012 (relative to a 2005 base year).
2. Floor area, consumption and emissions are prorated in accordance with the period held for new, acquired, and sold
   properties.
3. Actual and estimated direct (Scope 1) and energy indirect (Scope 2) emissions.
4. Vacancy across the portfolio was stable between 2005 and 2009 (9.2% vs. 9.1% respectively); vacancy across the
   portfolio increased from 3.3% in 2008 to 9.1% in 2009 resulting in downward pressure on consumption.
5.   Capacity upgrades at several data centre properties between 2005 and 2007 resulted in upward pressure on
     electricity consumption and emissions.
6.   Portfolio shifts resulted in downward pressure on electricity consumption and emissions.
7.   Energy efficiency capital improvements, conservation, enhanced management practices, and cleaner emission
     factors for some provinces (e.g. Alberta) resulted in downward pressure on consumption.
8.   Emission numbers reported above do not include deep lake water cooling due to availability of emission factors.

NOTES:
1. Number of buildings refers to buildings with actual, 3rd party audited waste data.
2. Waste denotes the materials generated on-site which were sent to landfill. Resources (Recycled Materials) denotes
   materials generated on-site which were reused or recycled.
3. Percentage increase is listed to maintain consistency across all indicators. Also represents a simple diversion level
   increase of 10.8% (2006/2009) or 6.4% (2008/2009).
4. Reduced diversion rate in 2008 due to the inclusion of a number of office and retail properties in markets with less
   access to recycling, and reduced diversion rate in 2009 due to the inclusion of several new retail properties.
