Many local governments have adopted the BC Energy Step Code and developed climate plans with ambitious GHG emission reduction targets. At the same time, these local governments may also have policies and bylaws that do not support, and in some cases inhibit, construction of low carbon buildings. The Low Carbon Building Policy Toolkit was developed to help local governments remove barriers and make it easier to build low-carbon, high-performance buildings in their communities. In this session, toolkit authors Devon Miller and Brendan McEwen will provide an overview of the toolkit, and how it can be used by local governments seeking to remove barriers to the uptake of low carbon buildings in their communities.
