Building – Design, Development & Management

Lisa King, MA

Senior Policy Planner, City of Toronto, City Planning Division

It takes less time – and probably fewer people – to build a condo in downtown Toronto than it does to get everyone on board for a greener building standard in the largest city in Canada, but that’s a task Lisa has taken on twice – first as part of the team that crafted the Toronto Green Standard and most recently as the lead in the creation of the new Zero Emissions Buildings Framework for the City of Toronto. Once implemented, the framework will set Toronto specific energy requirements, laying the foundation for achieving zero emissions new buildings by 2030 and sets Toronto on pace to reduce city-wide GHG emissions by over 30.6 Megatonnes of carbon by 2050.
