Round Table

Commercial Buildings Toronto Outreach Session

NRTEE-SDTC report on Energy Efficiency in Commercial Building Sector builds momentum among industry stakeholders eager to learn how to reduce emissions and increase energy efficiency.

(Toronto, January 28, 2009) - The National Round Table on the Environment and the Economy together with Sustainable Development Technology Canada presented ?Geared for Change: Energy Efficiency in Canada?s Commercial Building Sector? to a packed audience in Toronto.

The report represents a major step in addressing the realities facing the commercial building sector in Canada as it moves to address challenges like emissions and energy consumption. It presents a viable carbon emission and energy efficiency policy pathway for the commercial building sector.

The event was co-hosted by the Real Property Association of Canada (REALPac) and brought together 47 major players in the sector (list of participants). Participants heard a first-hand presentation from some of the authors of the report, and then had a chance to ask questions and engage in discussions.

The NRTEE will be presenting the policy recommendations from the report in major centres across Canada over the next few months.
