 Deep Emissions Retrofit November 2021 image

This event is a collaboration with the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC).

Happening This Month

Are we Ready? Supply Chain and Labour Force Capacity

Both the City of Vancouver and the Metro Vancouver Regional District are working on plans to limit the amount of GHGs an existing building can emit. Once these plans are finalized, regulations will follow. But are we ready for these climate-friendly “big moves”? Are the labour force and supply chains ready or able to rise to this challenge after all the disruptions caused by the pandemic? We’re sure you’ve got something to say about this!

Join ZEBx, CaGBC, HPSC, Delphi Group and Dunsky for our next Deep Emissions Retrofit Dialogue on this hot topic.


Taking stock: Technology needs, availability and gaps in B.C.’s heat pump market and other early findings from the Vancouver Economic Commission’s Heat Pump Technology Attraction Strategy.
