The buildings sector needs to take urgent action

According to the Canada's 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan, for Canada to reach net‑zero by 2050 the emissions from buildings need to be reduced by over 47 Megatonnes (mt) of GHG emissions. To meet this goal, the buildings sector needs to take urgent action to decarbonize operations. Benchmarking your building(s) and eliminating energy waste is the place to start.
