The State of Green Building in Canada

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

This issue of SABMag endeavours to provide a snapshot of the current state of the green building movement in Canada, its recent accomplishments, its current concerns and its emerging trends.

[See www.sabmagazine.com Issues 12, 18, 24 and 30].
