Home to over 100 stores and restaurants, Intercity Shopping Centre has a tremendous opportunity to reduce the impact it has on the environment. We actively work with our tenants, employees, suppliers, and visitors as part of our continued effort to reduce ISC's environmental footprint.
Our green initiatives have made a measurable difference on the environment, and we are constantly looking for new ways to reduce further impact. Moving forward, ISC has implemented a Going Green Eco-Strategy, a long-term plan designed to make ISC environmentally sustainable.
We believe that what's good for the environment is ultimately good for all of us.

Zero Waste Action Team
In 1992, Intercity Shopping Centre co-founded the Zero Waste Action Team with a group of other eco-minded organizations including Tbaytel, Thunder Bay Hydro, Bell Canada, and local hospitals. This self-supporting, volunteer organization now has over 30 members, working together to eliminate waste, manage resources, and promote local jobs and economic self-sufficiency in Thunder Bay. ISC is proud of its role in the founding of this initiative and will continue its commitment to the Zero Waste Action Team.
