ASHRAE, Canada Green Building Council Partner to Advance Sustainability
ATLANTA – The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) will work together to advance buildings that are healthy, productive, environmentally responsible and economically viable.
The two organizations, both of whom are committed to green building and sustainable community development, have signed a memorandum of understanding.
The memorandum calls for ASHRAE and the Council to join efforts in development and maintenance of technical standards and guidelines, communications and marketing, and research and education of members and the building industry.
“This year, ASHRAE has renewed focus in working with other organizations to share and further our technical guidance,” Terry Townsend, P.E., ASHRAE president, said. “Working with the CaGBC will allow us to improve on our efforts in achieving energy savings without sacrificing comfort, air quality or productivity."
Thomas Mueller, president of the CaGBC, also is enthusiastic about the new collaboration.
“The CaGBC shares ASHRAE’s interest in the opportunities to evolve the technical aspects of buildings,” he said. “The work we can do together in Canada will benefit not only our respective memberships but anyone interested in engaging in better building practices.”
The CaGBC was established in December 2002 to promote and accelerate the design and construction of high performance buildings for livable communities. The Council advances market transformation through advocacy, education, application and development of tools, and celebration of demonstrably superior performance. The CaGBC membership represents a reach of more than 500,000 public and private sector professionals across Canada.
ASHRAE, founded in 1894, is an international organization of 55,000 persons. ASHRAE fulfills its mission of advancing heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration to serve humanity and promote a sustainable world through research, standards writing, publishing and continuing education.
