HRAI and the City of Vancouver, Working on Low Carbon Emissions Plans

The City of Vancouver has approached HRAI to produce a guide for builders and contractors that helps educate this group on upcoming Vancouver Building Bylaw (VBBL) 2022 updates, what products comply with the updated code, and key considerations for each product.  This guide will serve as an additional resource for industry in support of the City of Vancouver’s emissions goals for 2030 and beyond.

Municipalities across Canada are developing plans that will help with the transition to low carbon emissions in existing and new buildings by 2030.   To achieve this, HRAI has been asked by several municipalities to be a resource when developing these plans.  A common theme is how HRAI and municipalities across Canada phase builders and contractors in new initiatives that align with emission’s reduction goals set by local governments.

A proposal has been submitted to the City of Vancouver.  If accepted, HRAI will be looking to members in BC to be a sounding board in the development of this new guide.  If you are interested please contact Loretta Zita for more information.

More on this initiative will be available in the coming weeks.
