"The Canadian buildings sector can make a significant contribution to the reduction of our greenhouse gases. Nearly half a million commercial and institutional establishments provide spaces for our education, health care, government and business and account for 14 percent of energy consumption and 13 percent of emissions.
Energy efficiency is a proven strategy to lower emissions and reduce energy use and costs. Despite this, many Canadian building owners and managers have not taken advantage of the benefits of becoming more efficient. Technologies, know-how and processes available today can reduce costs, improve performance, increase occupant comfort and contribute to a cleaner environment."
