Zero Carbon Showcase

Learn about Canadian projects and teams achieving zero carbon emissions

 

The CaGBC’s Zero Carbon Building Standard has created a pathway for both new and existing buildings to reach zero carbon.

The ZCB Standard was designed to help Canada meet its international emissions targets by 2030 by guiding the industry to focus on carbon as its key performance metric. Explore our Zero Carbon projects, which include new and existing offices, schools, and warehouses—each demonstrating that buildings of all types and age can achieve zero.
