What the new Federal Green Building Strategy could look like (part one)

By establishing “net-zero emissions” as the goal of the Green Building Strategy the federal government will need to lead a process of structural change towards that end state. That means defining the building standards and policies that are needed to reach net-zero and forging coalitions of provinces, municipalities, utilities, businesses etc. taking actions consistent with that goal. A net-zero framework therefore contrasts with previous strategies that focused on incremental emission reductions and efficiency improvements, and relied upon achieving consensus amongst provinces and territories.

The 2022 International Energy Efficiency Scorecard is out. Produced by our colleagues at the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy, it assesses the policies and performance of the world’s top 25 energy consuming countries. In this blog, we dig into the results, and discuss what we can learn to improve energy efficiency in Canada.

Energy poverty needs to be prioritized at the national level if the transition to net-zero emissions is to be fair and just. The federal government can play a leadership role by expanding the scale and scope of low-income energy efficiency.
