Making your home more energy-efficient and sustainable doesn’t have to be hard! In this live episode of What On EARTH Can We Do? the Alberta Emerald Foundation team sits down with green building technology experts Melanie Ross at the SAIT and Peter Graul to find out what green building technologies are and how we can use them to make our homes greener.

The Alberta Real Estate Foundation’s Executive Director, Patti Morris, took part:

“This conversation is so timely. This summer, in celebration of our 30th anniversary and three decades of service to the province, we held engagement sessions with our stakeholders in the real estate industry, past recipients of our grant programs, and others to help chart our future. We heard that the real estate industry is facing massive changes – demographic, cultural, social, environmental and financial. Critical amongst these relating to green building technologies are the sustainability of urban housing and commercial development, changes in the technology of homes and energy efficiency, and the impacts of climate change.”

The Foundation supports the Alberta Emerald Foundation’s year-round programming to share stories, through the Emerald Awards, speaker series, documentary series, tutorials, and this podcast. We recently funded SAIT for the development of green building education for real estate professionals.
