Best way to build your green building industry network

Regardless of whether you are new to the green building industry or an experienced professional, there are three key ways grow your career: expand your network, stay current and relevant, and participate key industry events. 


Each year, the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) hosts a national conference which attracts close to 1,000 green building industry professionals to learn, network and build actionable solutions to climate change. Online for the first time, even more professionals will have access to top industry education delivered by experts from around the globe.


Building Lasting Change 2020 Online kicks off on September 22, a half-day of education and learning each Tuesday over five weeks. Representatives from all sectors of the industry will gather together and outline how the building sector can drive global action toward a low carbon economy and contribute to meeting national climate change targets of a 30 per cent reduction by 2030; show how the building sector is providing specific solutions in Canada and abroad; and balance these plans with a holistic approach to buildings and social sustainability as pathways of wider engagement.


The 2020 conference will tackle key issues of the day, including the green recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, reaching zero carbon, resilience, retrofits and the impact of green building on human health.
