GWP & Accountability, Sustainable Engineering Practices By Paul Lowes

The impact of climate change has reached a point where it can no longer be ignored. Federal and Provincial governments have implemented rebates and taxes, to incentivize industry and citizens to do their part to address climate change. Most companies in North America have implemented strategies and targets to mitigate their impact on the environment. Companies express these efforts in Environmental Social Governance (ESG) policies and reporting. Nowhere is this movement more profound than the construction industry.

Topics include:

  • Manufacturer’s products with lower Global Warming Potential (GWP) and EPD. Builders must meet the evolving regulatory requirements of the municipalities in which they build; The Low Carbon Home Builder Coalition (LCHC) constructs homes that reduce operational energy and water consumption with products that have a low GWP.
  • Carbon rating systems like HERS and CAGBC Zero Carbon
  • How the LCHC can empower builders to measure and report CO2 reduction for Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)

The virtual webinar will be hosted via Zoom on November 22nd, 2023 from 10:30am to 12:00pm. Please join us and register at Eventbrite via
