About this Project

Status: Completed
Operational Plan: 2013 - 2014

Buildings in North America are major consumers of electricity and water and contribute an estimated 35 percent of the continent’s total greenhouse gas emissions. Building greener, more environmentally sustainable structures can reduce the environmental impacts of our buildings. With a view to strengthening the environmental and economic performance of North America’s built environment, this project will engage the private sector to advance green workforce training and resource use efficiency. This project will also explore opportunities to increase availability of green building construction in isolated communities across North America.
