Building - Design, Development & Management

Andrew Bowerbank

Global Director, Sustainable Building Services, EllisDon Corporation

After launching the Low Carbon Agenda for EllisDon, Andrew was a key instigator in brokering an industry led partnership. The Carbon Impact Initiative was formed in support of Canada’s COP21 commitments, and includes partners BASF, WSP, Cement Association of Canada, Cricket Energy, Enbridge and Cisco, and this past February, Andrew brought seventy senior industry executives together to discuss how these Canadian industries can work with regulators to transform the market into a low-carbon economy. The seven partners then developed the Industry Response Strategy focused on Net-Zero Energy buildings, carbon accounting for buildings, adoption of clean technology and incentives for low-carbon building.
