Carbon Neutral Buildings

Posted May 25, 2012

The ISO 14064 series of GHG quantification, reporting and verification standards are internationally recognized tools assisting organizations in their quest to become carbon neutral. Substantiating and communicating carbon neutral claims and avoiding “greenwashing” accusations can, however, be challenging. Businesses are seeking clear guidance and best practices in this area. CSA Group has responded to this challenge by launching a new standards-based program that provides an independent and transparent process for organizations, building owners and tenants to declare their carbon advantage.

This previously recorded webinar explores:

  • The carbon neutral concept
  • Creating an alignment between landlords and occupiers to reduce energy consumption
  • Carbon neutral for building operations and the linkage to sustainable building standards
  • How are carbon neutral programs different to building rating systems (i.e. LEED, BOMA BeST)?
  • Benefits to both landlords and occupiers
  • Understanding “who pays vs. who benefits”
  • Recognizing and communicating carbon neutral claims
    • The new CSA Registered Carbon NeutralTM Program and Label
  • Steps to net zero GHG emissions

Speakers from CSA Group and Cushman & Wakefield discussed how standards-based solutions can help businesses achieve their sustainability goals, increase energy efficiency and reduce their carbon footprint.
