Timeline: 2022 onwards
Ottawa is introducing City’s first Green Development Standard known as the HPDS (High-Performance Development Standard). This is an important foundational step to tackling the 45% of Ottawa’s Emissions that come from buildings. This Standard will impact much more than new building development by influencing Ottawa’s Tree Canopy, Electric Vehicle Infrastructure, Waste Removal, Roofing & Pavement, etc., to put Ottawa in place to possibly reach Net-Zero targets for 2030 & 2050.
