– Building Carbon Neutrality in Northern Canada – Northern Center for Sustainability Case Study


The Northern Centre for Sustainability is a living lab and innovation hub on the United Nations based on sustainable development goals in Canada’s far North, at the first row of climate change impacts with melting permafrost and extreme weather events. The building will become a flagship for the Building Retrofit Economy, integrating Canada’s experts on solar energy building integration, creating jobs and reducing greenhouse gas emissions while promoting reconciliation and the celebration of local art and culture. The building will use waste mash from the local brewery to create the first node of a northern bioeconomy, creating the first carbon-negative building in Canada.
