Creating green jobs
Retrofitting existing buildings can create jobs that will stay in demand as low-carbon building approaches become the norm. We call this the “retrofit economy,” where demand for energy-efficient, low-carbon building retrofits will stimulate job growth and supply chain innovation.
Retrofits can help Canada reignite the economy post-pandemic. In Canada’s Green Building Engine, our research shows the potential of government investment in a green recovery: 1.5 million direct green building jobs and $150 billion in GDP by 2030.
