Green Building Leadership Award For Vancouver

Vancouver took top honours at the World Green Building Council’s Government Leadership Awards, earning the citation for Best Green Building Policy. Held in partnership with the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) and the United Nations’ UN-HABITAT Human Settlements Program, the biennial award program recognizes local government leadership in green building and highlights policies that maximize the opportunity for buildings to mitigate environmental impact. Vancouver was singled out for its Greenest City 2020 Action Plan, which calls for a 20% decrease in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020. Winning cities were chosen by an expert panel of judges representing ICLEI, UN-HABITAT, and the World Green Building Council. The winners were announced at the Warsaw Dialogue on Scaling-Up Local and Subnational Climate Action, held in conjunction with the UN Climate Change Conference in Warsaw, Poland.
