Green Buildings Strategy

The climate crisis demands immediate action to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and develop climate-resilient buildings. Green buildings reflect a sustainable and comprehensive approach to improving the energy efficiency of buildings and reducing their emissions to ensure a healthier environment and future for all Canadians.

To protect our environment and reduce the impacts of climate change, the Government of Canada has committed to reducing Canada’s total GHG emissions to 40 to 45% below 2005 levels by 2030 and to reaching net-zero by 2050. As the buildings sector is the third-largest source of emissions in Canada, prioritizing decarbonization, i.e. reducing or ending emissions into the atmosphere, is key to meeting our objectives. However, achieving net-zero emissions in buildings by 2050 will require overcoming several significant challenges. Achieving net-zero GHG emissions in the buildings sector by 2050 is an ambitious goal, which is why Budget 2022  has committed $150 million to develop the Canada Green Buildings Strategy.

The ultimate goal of the Canada Green Buildings Strategy is a net-zero emissions and climate-resilient buildings sector by 2050, with an interim goal of 37% emissions reduction from 2005 levels by 2030. To succeed, all levels of government, the private sector, communities, and individuals across Canada need to work together!
