Zero Carbon Case Studies

Showcasing Canadian projects and teams that prioritize the pursuit of zero carbon emissions through the application of their expertise and innovation, as well as the use of advanced technologies and products.

These projects demonstrate a major step forward in achieving Canada’s climate change commitments by making carbon emissions the key indicator for building performance. These projects feature many top leaders in green building, from design and engineering through to material manufacturing, interior design and construction.
