City Agency, Corporation & Division-Owned Facilities Version 3
The Toronto Green Standard Version 3 includes a consolidated Standard for high performance city building projects. This Standard applies to all non-residential development being planned and built by the City’s Agencies, Corporations & Divisions. City-owned residential buildings apply the Mid-High Rise Residential Standard e.g. Toronto Community Housing.
The new City Standard includes Tier 2 level performance measures and some optional higher, voluntary targets in some categories that help to achieve Toronto’s low carbon pathway if selected. The Version 3 Standard applies to all buildings and additions greater than 100 m² GFA commencing in 2018 with the 10 year Capital budget and Plan within all procurement processes. City building projects must be third-party certified post-construction.
City Agencies, Corporations and Divisions are also required to aim to achieve a net-zero energy and emissions target for all new buildings where technically practical and financially feasible.
See the City Council Decision to adopt a Toronto Green Standard Tier 2 policy for City-owned and ACD buildings from March 28, 29, 2017 for details.
