First round of appetizers compliments of our guest host and event sponsor: Ottawa Chapter, CaGBC
This month we are pleased to welcome as a guest host and event sponsor the Ottawa Chapter of the Canadian Green Building Council. Kimberly Bouffard has generously accepted to manage the onsite activities.

Zero Carbon Buildings:
CaGBCís Zero Carbon Building Standard is Canadaís first green building program to make carbon emissions the key indicator for building performance.

With this new Standard, Canada joins an elite group of countries, including Australia, France, Switzerland, UK and US who are showing leadership in carbon reduction.

Join us to discuss the next evolution of green buildings.
Buildings are a significant cause of GHG emissions. With approximately half a million commercial and institutional buildings in Canada alone, there is a huge opportunity for those working in the buildings industry to have a positive impact on environmental sustainability.

We invite you to join us on Oct 12 for an interactive discussion about low carbon buildings: what they look like and how we get there.

Green Speaker Guest:
