Making the Case for Building to Zero Carbon
Carbon, Real Estate
The CAGBC conducted a study to address the knowledge gap in research on Zero Carbon Buildings. They evaluated financial feasibility and impact of constructing new ZBCs across 7 building types and 6 communities. This study demonstrates that Canada can significantly and economically advance its current GHG reduction targets, and those advised by the IPCC, by taking a Zero Carbon Building (ZCB) approach in the real estate sector.
