Our survival depends on taking aggressive steps to fight climate change. At Sustainable Buildings Canada (SBC) we believe it’s imperative that we design, build and operate better buildings. 

For 20 years we’ve been a leader in the ‘next level’ of sustainability — helping developers / builders / operators achieve high performance outcomes in the built environment, encompassing a range of positive results including healthy spaces, lower energy and water use, clean and renewable energy and positive behavioural outcomes.

The Nexus Between Buildings and Infrastructure


June 18th 2024

The next Green Building Festival will take place on Tuesday June 18, 2024 and will feature both keynote speakers and panel sessions.

“By bringing together a carefully curated network of some of the industry’s top sustainability and green building leaders and environmental performance experts, we can collectively assess any building project, whether new or retrofit, and offer financially realistic, practical and actionable solutions for achieving a high performance outcome.”

-Mike Singleton, Executive Director

“This program is a unique opportunity for this next generation of students to experience the integrated design and delivery process on a real project building, together for one week, and to learn from each other as well as from professionals and faculty”

-Bettina Hoar, SBC Board Member and Boot Camp Project Director
