Why Green Building

Transforming Canada’s buildings for good

Green buildings are a proven choice for a better, more prosperous and resilient future. They reduce energy and water use, cut waste, and are more affordable to operate. By building green, we can create good jobs and encourage climate-friendly innovations. Today, advances in green building can reduce carbon emissions and eliminate environmental impacts, making communities more resilient and helping Canada meet its climate targets.

Green Building Benefits

Green buildings are affordable, efficient, and designed with people and the environment in mind.

Building Climate Solutions

To meet Canada’s climate targets green, resilient, and zero-carbon buildings must become the norm.

Retrofits for the Future

Retrofitting existing buildings is important to reaching Canada’s climate targets and a significant job creating engine.

Green Building Jobs

Meeting zero carbon building and retrofit demand requires more workers with the right skills.
