#coffeetalk: Decarbonization of Buildings

  • April 20, 2023
  • 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
  • Virtual Event



Achieving provincial climate targets requires collective effort and transformations across industries. For buildings and communities, the Province has set a 2030 emissions reduction goal of 59 to 64% relative to 2007 emissions. There’s a lot of building decarbonization work left to get there. This work primarily involves the installation of high-efficiency, electric equipment (eg. heat pumps).

Join Roberto and Mariko from the Zero Emissions Building Exchange (ZEBx) to discuss the impacts and opportunities of the transition to zero emissions buildings.
