Building Strong Market Infrastructure for Canada's Retrofit

DURATION: 1 hour

CaGBC’s research demonstrates that national targets can only be reached by reducing the emissions of the millions of square feet of existing institutional, commercial, and residential buildings across the country. Yet, while green building approaches, practices, and technologies are being widely adopted for new buildings, there is an underinvestment in the retrofit of Canada’s existing building stock to drive energy and GHG reductions. Correcting this underinvestment requires the development of a strong retrofit economy where the market takes the lead in transforming Canada’s built environment to help fight climate change and create new economic opportunities for Canadians.

This session distills information from a recent report and sets out a series of comprehensive and specific actions for governments and, more importantly, for industry to build one of the world’s most robust and dynamic retrofit economies by 2030.

This course will be delivered by Akua Schatz. Akua is the Senior Director of Advocacy and Market Development at the Canada Green Building Council.
