Built Green Canada is a national, industry-driven organization committed to working with builders interested in responsible sustainability practices in the residential building sector. The organization offers programs for Single Family, Single Family Renovations, High Density (including multi-storey, residential tower, and mixed-use), and High Density Renovation projects. These programs go beyond energy efficiency, moving the industry toward a more holistic approach to sustainable building practices, which includes the preservation of natural resources, reduction of pollution, ventilation and air quality, and the improvement of home durability.
Committed to the integrity of its programs, Built Green Canada provides learning opportunities that allow for continuous improvements to building practices, participation affordability, and third-party certification, which requires builders to contract Energy Advisors to assess the effectiveness of the systems in the home.
Founded in 2003, the organization has representation in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and Ontario, and has now expanded into Manitoba. Builders have worked with Built Green to complete over 32,750 BUILT GREEN® certified homes represented in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and Ontario—including the units in multi-storey projects, the total is over 36,090. The cumulative impact of these single family certified homes translated into more than half a million (588,505.29) tonnes of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions saved (as at March 31, 2019).
