The Vancouver Economic Commission (VEC) has conducted a market research to green building developments (2019-2032). Focusing on the developments and demand in the green building sector in Vancouver. On the 6th and 7th of June two team members of the VEC visited the Netherlands and met with Annemarie van Doorn, director of the Dutch Green Building Council to discuss some of the findings of the research, providing an overview of Vancouver’s policy and regulatory environment, and the market opportunities that will emerge. They also met with a variety of Dutch companies to see how this can lead to new collaboration in the context of green developments.
