World's tallest hybrid timber tower planned for Canada

“The project will be Passive House certified, and will exceed the City of Vancouver’s Zero Emissions Building Plan performance requirements, well ahead of the 2030 [reduction of carbon pollution] target,” says Perkins+Will. “Aggressively reducing Green House Gas emissions, in construction and operations, is a priority for the project. As a part of the CaGBC (Canada Green Building Council) Zero Carbon Buildings Pilot program, Canada’s Earth Tower will be a zero emissions building. The building will not consume fossil fuels, such as natural gas, in operation.”
