The session will present an overview of the need for market transformation in our buildings sector and identify the key programs, policy tools and incentives that will play a role. We will discuss the efforts that have been taken at provincial/state and municipal scales to support the building industry achieve zero carbon, as well as the impact voluntary standards are having. In the second half of the presentation, we will explore a selection of specific building projects that showcase innovative and cost-effective low-carbon solutions from across the world.
