Ecotrust Canada joins Green Building Council in move to link eco-forestry with “new urbanism”

Established in August of 2003, the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) is set to transform the country's architecture and construction industries as part of the growing conservation economy movement that's taking root in B.C. Ecotrust Canada is one of six environmental NGOs which have become members of the organization, whose mandate is to certify the sustainability of buildings. Ecotrust Canada sees its role in the Council as linking the boom in urban green building with the need to lead the rural resource economy toward eco-forestry.
