Creators: Emblem, Carrie
Abstract:

Toronto has recognized building structures as an
integral tool for reducing its carbon footprint. Yet
a paramount concern, however, is whether the
building and construction industry is prepared and
positioned to effectively design and communicate
the importance of sustainable buildings. The decisions
during the pre-design stage of new building
developments are vital in affecting the project’s
overall sustainability. The plan for transitioning
and promoting more environmentally sustainable
buildings is hard to define; however, using design
thinking, systems thinking, and strategic foresight,
this report has clarified a pathway by focusing on
knowledge management. This report concludes
by offering three areas to strengthen knowledge
building and management capabilities within the
building and construction industry.
