Event Description:

Climate adaptation and resilience in building design, builds upon the progress made in climate mitigation, including B.C.’s Energy Step Code and commitments to reduce carbon pollution. The goal is to create a climate adapted and low carbon resilient future for the province. This requires collaboration from all actors in the building sector, including governments, public agencies, the business sector, non-profits, NGOs, utilities and professional bodies.
Our expert panel will illustrate some of the initiatives in B.C. and Canada that will support the inclusion of climate adaptation and resilience in the design of future-ready buildings.
