The CaGBC has announced that the CaGBC 2017 Green Building Product of the Year Award is now open. The purpose of the award is to encourage Canadian companies to develop sustainable building products and materials, in order to better support the green building industry.

The Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) is a not-for-profit, national organization that has been working since 2002 to advance green building and sustainable community development practices in Canada. UL has been one of the key supporters of CaGBC and the Canadian sustainability industry. In 2016, UL participated in CaGBC’s national annual conference in Toronto and sponsored the prestigious 2016 Green Building Product of the Year Award.

Product submissions for the award are assessed based on four key areas: sustainability, transparency and verification, innovation, and application. Entrants to the competition must be a National CaGBC member to apply, and the product must be manufactured or designed in Canada to be eligible (services and software are not eligible).
