Attend the Better Buildings Breakfast on October 20th and learn about the Federal Government's framework to meet Canada's economic, social and environmental goals in government owned, operated and leased facilities.
The Vancouver Declaration on Climate Change combined with the Federal Sustainability Development Strategy has set important goals to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while growing the economy and supporting our social systems. To help achieve these goals, PSPC, in collaboration with Brookfield Global Integrated Solutions, has developed a framework to reduce the environmental impact of federally owned, operated and leased facilities across the country.
Economic development to promote clean technology and related employment is also an important component of the framework for real property. As part of the initiatives, Canadian innovation in the field of energy savings will be tested and, once viable, implemented on a larger scale. The intent is to provide a platform for innovative Canadian companies specializing in their field of expertise to launch and then scale their clean technologies.
Communication with all stakeholders will be essential to achieving the goals outlined in the framework. It establishes a communication protocol to ensure building occupants and operators are aware of the targeted improvements in performance, understand why buildings are under renovation and engages everyone to improve behaviours affecting energy consumption as well as GHG emissions.
