Benchmarking 2020 Data – How Does COVID Impact Benchmarking and Disclosure?
Date: May 6, 2021
Time: 12:00pm - 1:00pm Eastern
We all know the disruption caused by the pandemic and how it altered, sometimes dramatically, how our buildings operated. But what does this mean for how we report our buildings to the various programs that help us monitor, manage, and evaluate our building performance?
Whether you are reporting for regulatory compliance with Ontario’s EWRB Policy, certification (LEED, BOMA BEST), or voluntary benchmarking programs (Race to Reduce, ClimateWise Buildings Challenge, REALPAC, Disclosure Challenge) we have pulled together guidance on how to report into common programs and why it’s important to benchmark your 2020 data.
Presenters: Matthew Hirsch and Eric Chisholm, Purpose Building Inc.

The Canada Green Building Council is a not-for-profit, national organization that has been working since 2002 to advance green building and sustainable community development practices in Canada. The CaGBC is the licence holder for the LEED green building rating system in Canada and supports the WELL Building Standard and GRESB (Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark) in Canada.
Together with our membership of over 1,200 industry organizations and more than 2,500 individual Chapter members involved in designing, building and operating buildings, homes and communities, the Council has made excellent inroads toward achieving our mission of reducing the environmental impact of the built environment.
Acting as the voice of the green building industry, the CaGBC advocates for green building policies with all levels of governments and the private sector across Canada. The Council has also educated over 45,000 green professionals to answer the demand for knowledge and jobs this new green marketplace created. As a result of this advocacy, education and the hard work of our members, thousands of commercial and government buildings, schools, homes, community centres and historical structures have been retrofitted or newly constructed to green building standards.
