Policy and Advocacy
Enabling Meaningful Climate Action in the Building Sector Across Nova Scotia
This Policy Brief was developed by the members of the QUEST Nova Scotia Buildings Working Group over the course of two meetings coordinated by QUEST in January and March 2021. QUEST developed five themes that captured a broad scope of building-energy issues and opportunities to explore.
The Brief was submitted to Nova Scotia’s Department of Energy and Mines and Department of Environment and Climate Change in June 2021.
The Buildings Working Group has made recommendations in the following five categories:
Data and tracking
Funding and financing
Education and training
Standards, codes, quality assurance
Each category is distinct and addresses a particular area of need or opportunity to advance the energy and environmental performance of buildings in Nova Scotia. Many of the recommendations are also complementary, enhancing and supplementing one another.
