An Ottawa office building achieves first zero carbon certification in Canada
The Canada Green Building Council announced that an Ottawa office building at 100 Murray St. has been awarded Canada’s first zero carbon building certification for performance, as reported by Global News in Canada.
According to the council, Zero Carbon Building-Performance certification, which was created in October 2017, requires buildings to demonstrate that little to no carbon emissions were created over a 12-month period of the building’s operation, with the performance being verified annually.
Some of the larger items that contributed to the certification are its near-total use of electricity as the primary energy source, the establishment of an advanced building automation system, and the use of efficient lighting and control systems throughout the property.
