  • (Roodman and Lenssen,World Watch Institute Paper 124, 1995)that, globally, buildings and constructionactivity consume:• Three billion tons of raw materials, or 40% of total global use• Buildings use 40% of the world’s materials and energy• 55% of the wood cut for uses other then fuel is for construction• 30% of newly-built or renovated buildings suffer from ‘sick building syndrome’, their occupants exposed to stale, or mould- or chemical-laden air• Buildings and construction materials production account for at least 30% of greenhouse gas emissions. Since green buildings have a smaller ‘environmental footprint’ than more traditional developments, it makes sense to have more of them. This is especially so, since according to Dr David Orr, Chair of the Environmental Studies Program at Oberlin College, as many buildings will be constructed worldwide in the next 50 years as over the last 5,000
  • CaGBC envisions a transformed built environment leading to a sustainable future, and are working toward it by Changing industry standards,developing best design practices and guidelines,advocating for green buildings, anddeveloping educational tools to support its members in implementing sustainable design and construction practices.
  • What we do
  • 8 Canadian Chapters – Toronto is the largest.
  • The most well-known part of our work is the LEED rating system.
  • Construction is changing and one thing is clear: The construction industry is only moving in one direction: towards greener, higher performing buildings.Owners, especially institutions and owners with large portfolios of buildings are requesting greener buildings that are better built, more durable and use less energy. You can see the changes in this graph from the McGraw Hill Green Outlook Survey.As you can see, waaay back in 2005, green building comprised only a tiny fraction of the nonresidential construction market. Only 7 years later, green building makes up about 44% of the market! Even though the U.S. construction market as a whole fell off a cliff in 2008, the green building trend continued to rise with the projected increases growing to almost half of the construction industry by 2016. With such huge changes afoot, workers in the construction industry need to be prepared because green work practices are quickly becoming standard practice.
