A FRIENDLY COMPETITION THAT'S GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT!
In its Energy Policy 2030, the government of Quebec has set ambitious targets to improve energy efficiency and reduce consumption of petroleum products. The City of Montreal is also aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions with its 2016-20 sustainable development plan. As an association with a commanding presence in the commercial sector, BOMA Quebec intends to play a leading role to help reach those objectives.
BOMA Quebec thus created the Building Energy Challenge. We urge everyone in the commercial, institutional and multi-residential sector to support this project.
The initiative was inspired by other successful sustainable energy challenges such as RACE 2 REDUCE – The Smart Energy Building Challenge initiated by CivicAction and organized by BOMA Toronto. The BOMA Quebec project takes into account the Quebec context, especially our climate.
A simple 5-step process
We identify 5 major steps to help you reach your objectives and successfully complete the Challenge.
Three Award Categories
Many measures of performance and award categories are defined in the BEC structure. They have been conceived to encourage cooperation, excellence and perseverance among participants, who are free to enter their building in all three categories. Note that participation in the Collaboration category is strongly encouraged, but is optional.
