zeroThe Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) officially launched its Zero Carbon Building Standard at a press conference in Vancouver on May 29.

The new standard assesses carbon use in commercial, institutional, and multi-family buildings in Canada, and it was designed to be applicable for many types of new and existing buildings across the country.

It is also the only program of its kind to make carbon reductions the key indicator for building performance.

“While there is no doubt that Canada’s building sector has been dramatically transformed over the last two decades, the time has come to be bolder and more ambitious,” said CaGBC president/CEO Thomas Mueller.

Prior to the launch, CaGBC announced a list of 16 sustainable building projects across Canada that are taking part in the Zero Carbon Building Pilot Program. The participating projects will inform further development of the standard over a two-year period.

The full requirements of the new standard can be downloaded at cagbc.org/zerocarbon. Project registration for the standard will open September 5, along with full pricing and additional program details.

    IMO the “carbon-free” religion of AGW should be ignored and discredited at every opportunity. My engineering ethics prevent me from supporting or propogating this fraudulent “science” based religion. Its has been exposed as a complete fraud numerous times for its falsified data and questionable “science” based methodology. This is an international scam designerd to remove money and wealth from thiose who have earned it.
    What happened to ethics?
