Recognized as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2016)

Here are some of the reasons why BC Housing Management Commission was selected as one of Canada's Greenest Employers (2016):

  • BC Housing is committed to ensuring that all new housing projects are constructed to LEED Gold certification standards and, in partnership with its non-profit housing partners, has registered over 40 buildings with the Canadian Green Building Council -- additionally, the agency has reduced its energy consumption by 25 percent and greenhouse gas emissions by over 30 percent as part of its multi-year social housing renovation program
  • BC Housing's employee-led "Livegreen Employee Council" encourages all employees to make sustainable choices at home and at work -- the Council works towards specific objectives developed around the annual Sustainability Survey, from encouraging alternative transit (over 52 percent of employees bike, walk or take transit to work) to recycling weeks hosted twice a year, ongoing office composting and the annual "Meatless Mondays in March" campaign to raise awareness of the environmental impacts of cutting out meat just one day a week
  • Through the "Homeowner Protection Office", BC Housing advocates for greener building design, hosting green building seminars for individuals in the building industry, from tradespeople to architects and engineers -- over 26 building smart seminars were delivered in 23 communities across the province last year
