VIDEO: VRCA unveils Excellence in Sustainable Construction program
The Vancouver Regional Construction Association has unveiled a new program which certifies companies in the Lower Mainland who are integrating sustainability into their workflow.
The Excellence in Sustainable Construction program involves companies going through an on-site sustainability audit, registering to have their emissions tracked, taking courses and establishing their own sustainability plan before being certified.
Scott Construction Group, Flynn Canada Ltd., Gerry Enns Contracting Ltd. and Lark Group were the first companies to receive certification.
VRCA president Keith Sashaw was able to share his thoughts on the program and the importance of sustainability in the construction industry with the Journal of Commerce at an event held for the certified companies in Vancouver’s Van Dusen Botanical Center, Canada’s first Living Building.
