Québec City will host the United Nation’s Environment Programme’s Sustainable Building and Climate Initiative (UNEP-SBCI) Symposium in May 2014. Some 60 countries will be represented May 12 and 13, 2014 at the Québec City Convention Centre during the annual event where sustainable policies and practices for buildings will be promoted.
Mr. Sylvain Labbé, Chief Executive Officer of Québec Wood Export Bureau and Vice-President of Canada Wood, was pivotal in getting the event confirmed for Québec City. Active member of UNEP-SBCI advisory committee, Mr. Labbé convinced his peers to choose Québec City. The City’s environmental expertise and commitment as well as the Convention Centre recognized sustainability measures were instrumental in convincing the UNEP-SBCI.
Québec International, Canada Wood, Canada Green Building Council – Québec Chapter and Société d’habitation du Québec will jointly organize the Symposium.
