Just listen!
Our programs and initiatives include design platforms, strategies and tools; benchmarks, targets and policies; and professional education and high-performance districts.
New materials
The urban built environment is responsible for most of the world's fossil fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Collaborative efforts of planning and designing represent the way to the sustainable and carbon-neutral future.
Technology we use
We provide the framework for government entities to put in place incremental building sector actions to be taken over a fifteen-year timespan that will ensure phasing out CO2 emissions in the built environment by mid-century.
What we deliver
Our program includes building urban high-performance districts in cities across North America established by unique private/public partnerships committed to reducing energy use, water use, and transportation emissions.
