CAGBC Launches Low-Carbon Training Program

The Canada Green Building Council has launched a free training program designed to help commercial real estate building owners and operators develop low-carbon strategies.

The Low Carbon Training Program is the first of its kind in Canada. The training sessions will enable professionals in commercial real estate, architecture, engineering and construction with a common language and understanding of low-carbon strategies and solutions, said Toronto-based CAGBC.

Ottawa is partially funding the program, which CAGBC designed in partnership with the Canadian Construction Association (CCA), Climate Risk Institute (CRI), Royal Architectural Institute of Canadaa (RAIC), Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), and the Real Property Association of Canada (REALPAC) in consultation with leaders in the Canadian building sector. 

“The comprehensive curriculum encompasses the fundamental principles of low-carbon building that can be applied to new construction and building retrofits,” said CAGBC in a news release.

In September, Oxford Properties opened North America’s first zero-carbon office building, Stack, in Vancouver.
