Recognizing the Importance of Our Built Environment

In addition to providing healthy places for all of us to live and work, our built environment plays a key role in supporting economic growth and job creation across our region. Optimizing the use of energy within the built environment through energy efficiency measures improves the performance of our homes and workplaces, reduces energy bills and provides comfortable, healthy indoor environments.
