Canada is on the brink of an economic transition and a new report co-authored by Delphi, Green Building in Canada: Assessing the Market Impacts & Opportunities, demonstrates that the green building industry will be an important part of that transition. The report shows that the green building industry generated $23.45 billion in GDP and created more jobs in 2014 than Canada’s oil and gas extraction, mining and forestry industries combined.
The global green and sustainable building industry is projected to grow at an annual rate of twenty three percent between 2014 and 2017. Canada, a global leader in green building with the highest number of LEED buildings per capita in the world, has an enormous opportunity to capitalize on export and job creation opportunities.
Key findings from the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) and Delphi report include:
The Green Building in Canada report also makes a number of suggestions on how to accelerate industry growth and maximize economic opportunities.
