The Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) has embarked upon a multi-year development project to introduce the next generation of LEED® in Canada through the LEED® Canada Initiative.
In parallel to this effort, the CaGBC also launched GREEN UP – Canada’s Building Performance Program (formerly called Green Building Performance Initiative) a focused effort to develop an affordable and easily accessible tool for energy and environmental management for new and existing buildings. Both initiatives will enable large-scale reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, energy savings, and other environmental benefits for all building types and communities across Canada.
Lead and accelerate the transformation to high-performing, healthy green buildings, homes and communities throughout Canada.
A transformed built environment leading to a sustainable future The CaGBC Council works to:
- Change industry standards
- Develop best design practices and guidelines
- Advocate for green buildings, and Develop educational tools to support its members in implementing sustainable design and construction practices.
