The Canada Green Building Council announced June 13 that 100 Murray St. has been awarded Canada’s first zero carbon building certification for performance.

Managed by international real estate group Bentall Kennedy, the class A commercial office building had already achieved LEED Gold certification in 2016. According to the council, the managers have continued to optimize energy efficiency and carbon reduction measures and were able to demonstrate a balance of zero carbon emissions.

According to the council, Zero Carbon Building-Performance certification, which was created in October 2017, requires buildings to demonstrate that little to no carbon emissions were created over a 12-month period of the building’s operation, with the performance being verified annually.
