Over the next 30 years, if we could reduce refrigerant leakage to 0.4% of refrigerant used, it would save 89.7 gigatons of #CO2. By sharing our knowledge of current best practices we can accelerate the transformation of the built environment to meet our #climatechange obligations.

Read the latest whitepaper from our #LifeCycleAssessment team led by Louise Hamot on #Refrigerants & Environmental Impacts: https://www.integralgroup.com/news/refrigerants-environmental-impacts/

This best practice guide is intended to help those responsible for the design, installation, commissioning, operation, and maintenance of building services to make well-informed decisions in the design of refrigerant-based systems.

We’re excited for week 2 of CaGBC Building Lasting Change this week, talking about all things #ZeroCarbon!

Regional Director Chris Piche says, “The conference sessions to date should be considered nothing short of a success; the organizing committee has done an exceptional job of transitioning to a virtual conference with ease.

Today’s opening session and keynote focused on trends, opportunities and limitations with respect to energy and emissions, and provided the feedback we need to transform the built environment. I really enjoyed hearing what my colleagues Darryl Neate of Oxford Properties Group, Regan Smith of Manulife, and colleague and former university classmate Philippe Bernier of Triovest had to share!”

Chris was also honored to be appointed as a member of CaGBC’s Board of Directors this year and hopes to continue to help drive CaGBC towards a #ZeroCarbon future.
