MEETING CANADA’S GHG EMISSION REDUCTION TARGETS, ONE BUILDING AT A TIME
Welcome to the eighth edition of the LEED in Canada: Buildings in Review supplement, produced in partnership with SABMag. In this supplement, you will read about some of the most innovative and efficient buildings in Canada. LEED certification provides a critical third-party seal of approval in the marketplace, and ensures that a building has gone through a rigorous process to verify their environmental performance targets.
Over the past 15 years, the CaGBC has worked with the industry to change the way that buildings are designed, built and operated making Canada home to the second-highest number of LEED certified buildings outside of the U.S., with over 3,400 LEED certified projects, and well over 7,200 registered projects across the country.
Last year was a big year for Canadian green buildings, with the launch of Canada’s first Zero Carbon Building Standard, growing recognition and support from governments across Canada, and a slew of new LEED v4 certifications and registrations. We also continue to expand our educational offerings and technical training via webinars and in-classroom sessions, as well as bringing you the latest ideas, information and innovation at Building Lasting Change, this year including the international WorldGBC Congress, taking place at Beanfield Centre in Toronto from June 5 to 7 – we hope to see you there.
The CaGBC is pleased to continue our work with SABMag in providing professionals and contractors, building owners and developers, and manufacturers and suppliers with the national exposure and recognition they deserve for being at the forefront of green building innovation. Thank you for your commitment and support for this supplement and congratulations to all of the 2017 LEED certified projects.
