The Art of Mentoring

Learn how the Toronto Community Benefits Network is supporting black, Indigenous and newcomer communities through their Nexgen Builder Mentorship program. With a focus on women and youth, they’re helping those who are in the process of preparing for work in the construction industry connect with mentors – setting the next generation of trades workers and professionals up for success.
Kick off 2021 by hearing inspiring stories of those that have gone through the program and how you can join the movement to build a legacy for the next generation.

Mitigation of Communicable Disease Spread while Managing and Enhancing Energy Efficiency

The current pandemic has forced buildings owner and operators to quickly implement strategies to improve indoor air quality and reduce the risk of disease transmission. What are the typical measures being deployed? And what positive or negative impact do they have on energy efficiency?

A Renovation Wave for Europe – greening EU’s buildings, creating jobs, improving lives

Buildings are responsible for about 40% of the EU’s energy consumption, and 36% of greenhouse gas emissions from energy. But only 1% of buildings undergo energy efficient renovation every year, so effective action is crucial to making Europe climate-neutral by 2050.
By 2030, 35 million buildings could be renovated and up to 160,000 additional green jobs created in the construction sector.
The Renovation Wave Strategy by the European Commission aims to at least double renovation rates in the next ten years and make sure renovations lead to higher energy and resource efficiency. These efforts will enhance the quality of life for people living in and using the buildings, reduce Europe’s greenhouse gas emissions, foster digitalisation and improve the reuse and recycling of materials.
