Join CaGBC’s Fin MacDonald and members of the Zero Carbon Steering Committee for an in-depth discussion about the updates to theCaGBC’s Zero Carbon Building Standard.

The discussion will address how the Standard is designed to accelerate the adoption of zero carbon building practices – and help Canada meet its climate targets while also spurring innovation and job growth.

CaGBC’s made-in-Canada ZCB Standard provides the industry with a zero-carbon approach that works for any type of new or existing building. Version 2 draws on learnings from over 20 real-world ZCB-projects that have demonstrated the industry is ready to raise the bar on expanded requirements for embodied carbon and energy efficiency. At the same time, Version 2 aims to get more buildings to zero, faster, by providing more options for different design strategies.
