Thank you for downloading our municipal guides on net-zero emissions building codes.
What Municipalities Need to Know about Canada’s Net-Zero Emissions Building Codes shows how to use the upcoming net-zero emissions codes as a lever to accelerate climate action. Each section of the guide offers concise information related to the development of Canada’s national net-zero emissions building codes, and key factors that must be considered in its development and implementation.
The Municipal Guide to Net-Zero Energy Ready Building Codes contains everything you need to understand tiered codes, the advantages of adopting an ambitious tier, and how municipalities can use the new codes to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Learn how your municipality can use model code adoption to reach your net-zero goals, capture a range of energy and non-energy benefits, and lay the foundation to reach net-zero emissions.
These reports were funded by the Low Carbon Cities Canada (LC3) network. We would like to thank the LC3 network’s advisory group and other building practitioners and policymakers who provided insights and perspectives on what Canadian municipalities need to know to ensure it is best tailored to municipal needs and they are better prepared for the net-zero emissions building code—which is expected to be available by 2025.
