Vancouver Round Table Discussions - Reducing Building GHG Emissions

A picture containing tree, outdoor, city, dayDescription automatically generatedJoin other guests and industry peers in a virtual roundtable discussion on two of Metro Vancouver’s initiatives to reduce greenhouse gases and other air contaminants from facilities and buildings.

Register for one of theses Roundtable Sessions

At these roundtable sessions, Metro Vancouver staff will provide a presentation and engage in a conversation to hear from participants.

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from large buildings

Metro Vancouver is developing an approach to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from existing large residential, commercial, office and institutional buildings over 25,000 ft2 (over 2,322 m2). Buildings are the second highest source of GHG emissions in the region and significant reductions are needed to achieve our climate targets.

Reducing health-harming air contaminants from Boilers and Process Heaters

If you own, operate, or maintain a building with a boiler or an industrial process heater, Metro Vancouver is proposing amendments to the GVRD Boilers and Process Heaters Emission Regulation Bylaw No. 1087, 2008 (Bylaw 1087). The proposed changes will help improve our regional ambient air quality by further reducing health-harming air contaminants from boilers and process heaters.

NEW WEBINAR DATE ADDED: We are offering a webinar for a anyone interested in the proposed amendments to the Boilers and Process Heaters Emission Regulation on November 3, 2022.

Metro Vancouver’s Clean Air Plan includes targets to significantly reduce GHG emissions across the region by 2030, and achieve zero-emission buildings by 2050. It also includes targets for air quality to meet or be better than the ambient air quality objectives and standards at the regional, provincial, and federal levels.
