The 2018 Green Building Festival, organized by Sustainable Buildings Canada, will bring together 400 sustainable building professionals at the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre on October 11 from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm.
The event’s theme is “Healthy Buildings, Healthy Planet,” and it examines how the design/construction profession works to maintain healthy environments, from indoor environmental quality standards to net zero projects, and from material choices to biophilic cities.
