Zero Carbon Buildings Breakfast

April 27, 2017

Did you know that in cities like Ottawa 55 percent of our carbon emissions can be attributed to the built environment?

The focus of this breakfast event is on the new Zero Carbon Buildings Framework. This framework is the first stage of a broader Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) Zero Carbon Buildings Initiative to champion the move to lower-carbon commercial, institutional and high-rise residential buildings in support of Canada’s efforts to reduce GHG emissions by 30 per cent by 2030.

Join keynote Mark Hutchinson Vice President of Green Building Programs for the CaGBC and Chair of the USGBC LEED Steering Committee to learn more about this framework and the next phases of the Zero Carbon Initiative including the identification of specific pathways to zero carbon, a zero carbon building pilot program, and the development of a verification program to be completed and launched by CaGBC by the end of the second quarter of 2017.
