Pacific Business and Law Institute

Sustainable Developments: District Energy, Green Certifications, and Building for the Future

January 26, 2018
Vancouver, BC

Pursuing major developments that are sustainable and environmentally friendly is an important priority for regulators, owners, and developers. Novel approaches such as Community Energy or District Utility projects are gaining momentum as they allow for use and cost efficiencies while furthering important environmental goals. At the same time, the promulgation of various green certifications, such as LEED and BC Energy Step Code, require clarification of the benefits and uses of differing certification options. Continually changing standards, rules, and policies in this area necessitates forward-looking planning and ongoing efforts to stay apprised of new technologies and ideas.

This program will bring together experts in municipal planning, environmental and construction law, and sustainable development. Attendees will gain first-hand knowledge of the issues present and practical advice on how to address these issues and make decisions that will provide continuing benefit into the future. With an emphasis on practical advice and real-world examples, this program should not be missed.

  • Green building policies, codes, and certification standards
