Roadmap to Net Zero Summary Report 

This paper summarizes the challenges that surround taking a current condominium design, and moving the design performance level to meet the goals of Net Zero energy, carbon, water, waste diversion from landfill, while also meeting the City of Toronto targets for Toronto Green Standard Resiliency metrics. This paper summarizes the outcomes of two integrated design workshops undertaken by SBC that sought to both identify the pathways to next zero from a design and technology perspective and identify the key infrastructure barriers that need to be addressed to meet that target. With funding support from the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change and Enbridge Gas Distribution, this effort engaged over 75 subject matter experts, design decision makers and government representatives.
