Calgary partners with stakeholders on emissions-neutral buildings

Calgary partners with stakeholders on emissions-neutral buildings

CALGARY, ALTA. – The City of Calgary, Alberta Ecotrust and the Calgary Construction Association have partnered to advance emissions-neutral buildings in the city.

The parties have launched a Calgary Community of Practice to enable information sharing as part of the Emissions-Neutral Buildings Information Exchange (ENBIX).

“Our greatest opportunity to see greenhouse gas reductions is through our buildings. ENBIX is an investment in Calgary-made solutions, building capacity and momentum for emissions-neutral construction that will grow over the next several years and beyond,” Calgary Mayor Jyoti Gondek said in a statement.

The Calgary Community of Practice provides a space for local professionals working in the building, construction and renovation industry to share information about emissions-neutral construction with a goal of accelerating the transition to an emissions-neutral built environment for new and existing buildings across Alberta, a release said.

“Collaboration initiatives like the ENBIX Community of Practice will help us go faster towards net-zero, together. This initiative will help us develop made-in-Calgary solutions to achieve high performance buildings and will accelerate progress toward our goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050,” explained City of Calgary leader of community energy Claire Beckstead.

Industry support for the initiative comes from the Calgary Construction Association and the Smart Sustainable Resilient Infrastructure Association, both founding partners.

“The launch of the ENBIX Calgary Community of Practice marks a pivotal moment in our industry’s commitment to high performance buildings, especially in terms of long-term energy consumption and carbon footprint. Focusing on realistic solutions, and through collaboration and knowledge sharing, the leaders in our construction industry are taking proactive steps to mitigate our carbon footprint and contribute to a greener, cleaner future for Calgary,” Calgary Construction Association president and CEO Bill Black added.

Over the next four years, ENBIX will continue to expand the ways in which it shares market research, industry experience and training, including webinars, site visits, technology demonstrations and training sessions, the release said.
