Buildings are one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) in Waterloo  Region and it is important that new “Green” high performance building design standards (HPDS) are developed and implemented to help the Region progress towards the target of reducing its green house gas emissions 80% by 2050. You are invited to attend a free community workshop on Thursday, June 27 which will educate residents about HPDS and get your feedback regarding what the standards should be for our Region.  For more details and to register, go to our UPCOMING EVENTS page.  If you just want to register, go to:
