Zero-Carbon Building (ZCB) standards

A made-in-Canada solution

Aimed at decarbonizing all buildings in Canada, Zero-Carbon Building (ZCB) standards apply to all industrial, commercial and residential buildings in the country.

These standards offer a stringent yet flexible framework, guiding the design and sustainable performance of new buildings or building renovations with the objective of eliminating carbon emissions.

One certification, two routes

The ZCB program is split into two categories: design standards and energy performance standards.
