Gregor Robertson

EVP, Strategy and Partnerships, Nexii Building Solutions
Nexii’s breakthrough building system proves that planet-friendly solutions aren’t a sacrifice — they’re an improvement in every way over the status quo. Over the past 2.5 years, the team has led the company to build over 30 buildings incorporating over 345,000 sq. ft. of panels. On average, Nexii products have 33% less embodied carbon than conventional construction, and use 1/3 less energy overall and require half the heating energy compared to standard builds meeting code-compliant requirements. On top of that, the panels use ~60% less freshwater during manufacturing than the tilt-up concrete equivalent.

After leading the city of Vancouver as its longest serving Mayor, Gregor now focuses his work on positive solutions to the climate crisis. His vision for a greener, more inclusive Vancouver has led to record-setting years for new housing, job growth and the lowest carbon emissions per person for any major city in North America.
