Building Lasting Change 2020 – ONLINE – Ready, Set, Recover
Canada faces an unprecedented challenge – but also an unprecedented opportunity. We have reached a pivotal point where the transition toward a low-carbon economy must happen. At the same time, we face the social and economic fallout of a global pandemic.
As governments and industry consider Canada’s post-pandemic economic recovery, they will decide where to target increased spending and investment. Green building offers the most actionable solutions and can reignite the economy by creating skilled jobs and increasing innovation while reducing carbon emissions and enhancing Canadians’ quality of life.
In this critical decade, Canada must take urgent and sustained action to achieve its climate change commitments. Success will require accelerating and scaling up our collective impact across the entire building sector to provide healthier, low-carbon, and resilient places to work, live, and learn.
