Sustainable Built Environment Project

In 2015, the Real Estate Foundation of BC (REFBC) launched a  study on the state of the built environment in BC, also exploring how REFBC’s might best encourage sustainability.  A workshop of sector leaders was held and research was conducted on current status, trends, drivers and barriers to built environment sustainability. Two reports were generated:

The Built Environment in BC: Status, Trends and Future Prospects Discussion Paper
Towards A Sustainable Built Environment For British Columbia: Synthesis Of Findings

The project overall has generated significant support for establishing a collaborative network or organization to advance sustainability in BC communities.
