Global Best Practices In Energy Policy & Zero Emissions Building Framework
As part of the TGS update and review, the City Planning Division in partnership with The Atmospheric Fund has undertaken a two-part study on global best practices in energy codes and standards and modelling for energy and GHG reduction targets to a 2030 zero emissions date. The consulting team included Integral Group, Morrison Hershfield and Provident Energy Management. The lead consultant Integral Group worked closely with the City’s expert advisory committee to develop robust and defensible targets and costing for five of the most commonly constructed building archetypes in Toronto. Together Tier 1 through 4 provides Toronto’s proposed pathway to zero emissions buildings.
