BC Region: City of Vancouver Complimentary Webinar

Tuesday, September 29, 2020

Purpose: City of Vancouver staff are working on the development of a Zero Emission Building Retrofit (ZEB-R) Strategy, which will be presented to Council on November 3rd. This Strategy will include recommendations for voluntary and supporting actions as well as a new regulatory approach for reducing carbon pollution from existing buildings that will take effect for some buildings in 2025 and all buildings by 2030. City staff would like feedback from CIPH members on the draft actions and regulatory framework and to identify key issues and concerns that should be addressed in the next year before finalizing the new set of regulations.
