Since spring 2020, CaGBC, along with partners, members and allies, has been pushing the benefits of a green recovery. Recent modelling conducted by CaGBC shows that an investment in green building and progressive policies can achieve 1.5 million green building jobs by 2030. Investment in green buildings and green infrastructure has the power to not only kickstart the green economy, but meaningfully lower carbon emissions.
In light of this opportunity, CaGBC is teaming up with Enbridge in 2021 to deliver a series of webinars focused on how municipalities across Ontario can harness green buildings to spur their COVID recovery. Our August 11th webinar will focus on Hamilton-Niagara, and will feature the following panelists and presenters:
- Kevin Pellerin, President, CFMS-West Consulting Inc.
- Mary Quintana, Director, Asset Management & Utilities, Brock University
- David Premi, Principal & CEO, DPAI Architecture 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.
