The goal of Canadian governments is clear: buildings that require no more energy than they produce, and contribute to climate change and other environmental ills as little as possible. We can build them but, for the most part, we haven’t. On June 16, Glass Canada editor Patrick Flannery and a panel of top experts will take a look ahead at what will be asked of architectural glass designers in the years ahead and how we can get from here to there, in a new webinar sponsored by UL Canada.
