A Common Target for a Sustainable Future
The Building Energy Challenge (BEC) is a friendly, stimulating competition that will take place over 4 years. The goal is to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) in commercial and institutional buildings across Quebec through collaboration, sharing knowledge, education and innovation.
It is aimed at owners, managers and tenants interested in implementing responsible management practices to improve energy performance now and over the long term. It is free of charge and open to all commercial buildings in the province, whether members or not of BOMA Quebec.
If 15% of commercial and institutional buildings in Quebec reduced energy consumption by 10%, that would mean a reduction of approximately 2.45 million GJ of energy and of 60,000 tons of CO2 per year, or roughly 12,000 fewer cars on the road.
