Benefits for Manufacturers

The market for green building products continues to expand. The demand for products like yours is increasing. Here is your opportunity to transform that growth into your success.


Believe it or not, 30 per cent of Canadian contractors we recently surveyed say there is a lack of Canadian products or solutions available when trying to build green. CaGBC can help you change that perception. As we work to strengthen the industry and tighten the green building community, let us showcase your product’s story of transparency, sustainability, durability and efficiency to our extensive member network including owners, product specifiers, engineers, architects and diverse professional firms.

 

Our CaGBC membership has allowed us to demonstrate our commitment to sustainability and support for the ongoing development of the CaGBC's mission and advocacy efforts that advance carbon reduction and healthy green buildings. Shaw Contract has leveraged a range of benefits through our membership, including industry engagement and networking activities, access to their CaGBC industry-wide network and a range of member-exclusive promotional and sponsorship opportunities.
