Building Solutions for a Low Carbon Economy

Canada has ambitious goals to reduce the country’s carbon footprint. For the building industry, the path forward needs to be flexible to ensure that no building is left behind in the transition toward zero carbon.

CaGBC has developed a series of events that will educate, inform and inspire individuals in the green building industry and help them leverage new opportunities presented by the low-carbon economy. Participants will hear how the industry must prepare for the future with training and education that will position the workforce for the demands of high-performance building.

Participants will also hear about the updates to the made-in-Canada Zero Carbon Building (ZCB) Standard. ZCB v2 includes separate standards for Design and Performance, with more emphasis on embodied carbon, the interplay between power grids and buildings, and new compliance options to ensure greater energy efficiency and flexibility.
