This report was prepared in February 2019 by the Canada Green Building Council and advocates for applying the Zero Carbon Build (ZCB) approach for simultaneously lowering energy use and carbon emissions from buildings. The topics covered include unlocking the potential of zero carbon buildings, accelerating to zero, the business case for ZCB, the broader benefits of ZCB, and financial benefits of carbon reduction. The report is useful for building owner- operators, design teams and policy decision-makers.
