Low-Premium, High-Value Strategies to Reduce Embodied & Operational Carbon

Buildings are a largest source of carbon emissions of any sector and not until very recently have we begun to understand the potential climate impacts of projected building construction over the next 40 years. With homes and buildings accounting for 40% of global GHG emissions, reducing both embodied and operational carbon in construction will be critical to achieving net zero carbon targets by 2050. In its latest whitepaper, Buildings Canada is exploring the critical role of building design as a strategy to reduce embodied and operational carbon. 

Property Management: Now & In the Future

The outlook for the property management industry is positive for the foreseeable future. Developers in Canada are building new apartments and condos at historically high rates. According to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, (CMHC) apartment construction – whether purpose-built rental or condominiums – continued to grow in importance across Canada’s 6 largest centres. However, this shift towards rental properties and condos has revealed a critical shortage in qualified property managers who can handle the increased work load. Industry professionals and associations are now warning of a “property management crises” in Canada. In its latest whitepaper, Buildings Canada is exploring what the property management landscape looks like today, and what the future holds for the profession.
