Learn How the New Alternative Compliance Path can Help you Earn Leed Points

The BC Energy Step Code ACP is the result of extensive consultations of the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC), its Technical Advisory Group (TAG) and Steering Committee volunteers, and industry stakeholders. It provides a recognition path for projects going beyond code, enabling them to earn LEED points for energy performance by simply demonstrating compliance with Step 2 or higher of the BC Energy Step Code. 

The ACP is available to Part 3 buildings in British Columbia pursuing LEED v4 or LEED v4.1 under BD+C or Multifamily Midrise, in jurisdictions where the BC Energy Step Code has been referenced and its provisions are being enforced. If you have questions, please contact reach out to LEED Coach Canada.
