New Homes: BILD’s Green Policy – BILD pursues green initiatives:
As the green movement gains momentum on a global scale, so are the local initiatives being implemented by the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD).
In a whirlwind fact-finding effort, BILD’s new Green Committee has received presentations from some of Canada’s top ‘green’ organizations. Among them is the Canada Green Building Council, the organization behind the program known as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED.
BILD’s Committee has also heard from the Built Green Society of Canada. Based in Alberta, Built Green is the organization responsible for delivering the western Canada equivalent to our ENERGY STAR for new homes program.
BUILD’s Green Committee has also heard from the Toronto Atmospheric Fund, an organization established by City Council to combat global warming and improve air quality in the city, and studied the on-line home energy efficiency rating program established by the U.S. National Association of Home Builders.
