Attendees of this event learned how to accelerate deep retrofits and maximize the performance of existing buildings at this unique CaGBC forum.
In metropolitan centers, buildings are responsible for approximately half of all emissions. In fact, cities like Toronto attribute 53 per cent of their emissions to the built environment. We know that over 80 percent of Canada’s building stock today will be operational in 2030 and beyond. In order to reach a low carbon future, it is essential to retrofit existing buildings.
To help guide the industry, the CaGBC held an Existing Buildings Summit in Toronto on April 6, 2017. This event gave attendees an opportunity to learn about exceptional deep retrofit projects; explore different approaches to optimizing building performance; and understand provincial and federal initiatives that drive the energy efficiency improvements for Canada’s existing buildings.
