Day-Brite Canada is a proud member of the LEED Canada Initiative. The LEED Canada Initiative is the CaGBC’s effort, in collaboration with the USGBC, to develop the next generation of the green building rating system. record and monitor energy and water use and greenhouse gas emissions;
assess the energy and environmental performance of all their buildings, including carbon footprint and conservation potential;
identify and plan energy and environmental improvements using LEED templates;
obtain performance metrics and design standards to improve design of new buildings;
access training to guide staff in achieving and maintaining high performance;
assess their LEED scores, and put their buildings on track towards certification
The Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) has embarked upon a multi-year development project to introduce the next generation of LEED in Canada through the LEED Canada Initiative. In parallel to this effort, the CaGBC also launched the Green Building Performance Initiative—a focused effort to develop an affordable and easily accessible tool for energy and environmental management for new and existing buildings.
Both initiatives will enable large-scale reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, energy savings, and other environmental benefits for all building types and communities across Canada. LEED in Canada will feature streamlined elements including an integrated rating system, online user interface and third-party certification by international certification bodies.
Through close alignment with the work of the USGBC, this program will contribute to a unified LEED system in North America and will provide better access to LEED and increase the ability to certify projects quicker and cheaper for new and existing buildings of all types.
Through the CaGBC building performance management system, owners and managers will be able to go online and take a structured, standardized approach to:
