This paper is based on a technical report that was intended to provide the University of British Columbia’s (UBC) Sustainability Office with a potential strategy to move the Point Grey Campus to carbon neutrality without the purchase of carbon offsets by 2030 and to recommend a green building rating system that would form part of this strategy. The paper will focus on the analysis of the following green building rating systems and how they measure energy and carbon.
