Insights for a greener future

Advances in green building are driven by data. We can prove sustainability measures work by tracking resource use, emissions, and impacts on the environment and occupants. A data-based approach also guides CAGBC’s research, which explores critical areas of sustainability within a building context. 

CAGBC reports and studies help move the building sector forward. From demonstrating the need for tracking and benchmarking of building performance, to the feasibility of low-carbon buildings and retrofits, our research is a roadmap for the future of green building.
