CaGBC drives Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)

The LEED® green building certification program is a voluntary, consensus-based national rating system for buildings designed, constructed and operated for improved environmental and human health performance. LEED addresses all building types and emphasizes state-of-the- art strategies in five areas: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials and resources selection, and indoor environmental quality.

The Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) has embarked upon a multi-year development project to introduce the next generation of LEED in Canada, through the LEED Canada Initiative. In parallel to this effort, the CaGBC also launched GREEN UP - Canada's Building Performance Program (formerly called Green Building Performance Initiative), a focused effort to develop an affordable and easily accessible tool for energy and environmental management for new and existing buildings. Both initiatives will enable large-scale reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, energy savings, and other environmental benefits for all building types and communities across Canada.
