BIV Magazines has just issued Green Space BC 2009 – British Columbia’s Sustainability Resource. While I wish our copies had not arrived wrapped in heavy plastic…it was still interesting to look at what’s going on in Vancouver and across the province particularly in the green building field. From green electricity provider Bullfrog Power, through Metro Vancouver’s BuildSmart, programs (including a new handy dandy guide to design considerations for green roofs) to information about Canada’s Green Buiding Council’s latest initiative… the LEEDs (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system for certifying the “greenness” of your home…these are interesting times. It is refreshing to finally see some alternatives.
