Architecture Canada adopts sustainability initiative called the 2030 Challenge

2030-globe

The demand for energy and supplies for Canada’s buildings have resulted in greenhouse gases that affect the environment. In an effort to address this issue, the 2030 Challenge was created.

Formed by the independent organization Architecture 2030, this initiative is provided globally to building experts and requires the implementation of activities that will greatly reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of renovated and new Canadian buildings.

By creating a series of energy consumption goals and with the support of institutions and businesses to help carry out the attainment of those goals, the 2030 Challenge will provide each building owner the opportunity to help manage the challenges that buildings place on the environment.

The 2030 Challenge process will be done incrementally by reducing fossil fuel usage in buildings by 60% in 2010, 70% in 2015, 80% in 2020, 90% in 2025 and 100% in 2030. Within two decades, those cities that managed to meet this challenge will not be utilizing coal, natural gas or oil in the development of new buildings.

Plasti-Fab firmly supports the sustainability initiative, manufacturing many products that help achieve energy efficiency, increased R-values, and bring other values that support the challenge.
