What do the terms carbon and greenhouse gases (GHGs) mean anyway? How do these widely used terms apply outside of a 10th grade science class?  Why are we hearing about them now and how do they relate to buildings,  regulations and government? Why are we tracking them and what do they mean for the future of green buildings? This session will provide the opportunity to answer the above questions and put into context why we must pay attention to this now.  

Industry experts will provide an up-to-date overview on new greenhouse gas (GHG) regulations and what it means for building owners and operators. In addition, this session will introduce Net-Zero buildings and their design process and will provide analysis gathered from net-zero targeted case studies from across Canada. If you are interested in further understanding carbon's role on the built environment, this is a session you do not want to miss.
