ADVOCACY COMMITTEE
Committee Chair: Julia St. Michael

In the spring of 2016, the Canada Green Building Council Greater Toronto Chapter's Advocacy Committee began discussions on building energy benchmarking. Ian Theaker’s article in the spring 2014 issue of Toronto Focus (p17-18), Building Energy & GHG Benchmarking: Labeling and Transparency, provided a comprehensive overview of the issue and its context across Canada and in Toronto. Over the past year, the committee has pursued the initiative in a number of ways; the Chapter provided a letter of support for the motion presented by City Councillors to the Parks and Environment Committee for a staff report on a new bylaw and implementation plan to establish a mandatory ‘Annual Energy & Water Utilization Reporting Requirement’ for large buildings in Toronto for their March agenda. Any Chapter member interested in becoming involved should send their CV and expession of interest to greatertorontochapter@cagbc.org
