The Changing Carbon Landscape: Practical Implications for Organizations & Buildings in Canada

(1 GBCI CE hour)

Carbon targets. Carbon taxes. Cap and trade regulations. Net Zero Carbon buildings. There is a lot on the table to digest. The past year has seen considerable movement around the carbon landscape in Canada. The federal government, provinces and key organizations have worked hard to revitalize efforts to achieve Canada’s 2030 greenhouse gas emissions target. What’s the impact of these regulations and how have other countries responded? How can the commercial real estate sector collaborate to drive a low carbon agenda?
