LEED buildings in Ottawa

Buildings account for a large share of energy consumed. In Ottawa, almost 50% of greenhouse gas emissions come from heating, cooling, lighting and operating the building stock.

Green builders follow rating systems such as LEEDTM and Green Globes, while others do their best to reduce their projects' impact on climate, water use, and air quality. Ottawa currently has over 100 LEED certified buildings of which 12 are owned by the City of Ottawa.
