As part of the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) ongoing efforts to develop tools for municipal staff, the not-for-profit organization developed the Green Building Toolkit for Municipalities. The Toolkit provides Canadian municipalities with practical guidance for implementing sustainability solutions within their community. It contains principles, best practices, guidelines, and case studies from across Canada, representing municipalities of varying sizes. Its contents reflect the transition currently underway in the green building community - broadening thinking from the building scale to the community scale.

As a movement and an industry, green building is evolving rapidly. Recognizing leadership in this field means periodically moving the goal posts and rethinking the measures by which leadership is assessed. This session reviews existing tools and rating systems and explores new trends in the green building sector. Retrofits, Energy Benchmarking, Zero Carbon and Healthy Buildings are becoming common buzzwords. Find out what they mean and understand the research behind these innovations. We will also explore the interactive green building toolkit for municipalities and show how this resource can be used by municipalities of all sizes and at various stages in their green building or sustainability planning and policy development.
