Vancouver and Benchmark BC: Exploring the interplay between policy and data on the path to zero carbonWebinar on March 5, 2021
Cities around the world are seeking significant change to the built environment as a key pillar of their climate strategy. This is particularly daunting in that climate change mitigation requires aggressive and quick reduction targets even while the pathways to realizing those targets are still emerging.
This presentation will explore the interplay between policy and data in facilitating the design and effectiveness of climate interventions at scale. Brenda Scott Castro from the City of Vancouver will provide a policy example in Vancouver’s zero emissions retrofit strategy, while Donovan Woollard from OPEN Technologies will discuss how cities around BC are working to build data collection and interpretation pathways through the Building Benchmark BC pilot.
