The ClimateWise Building Challenge is a friendly York Region competition that challenges participants to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and energy consumption in buildings. The City of Markham participated and showed leadership in this competition with support from City staff who led our energy reductions.
The first year of the competition was held in 2021. Three (3) Markham buildings were selected to compete against themselves and other facilities in York Region. The three (3) buildings selected were 8100 Warden, Markham Village Library and Crosby Community Centre.
In 2022, the City of Markham’s entire building portfolio was entered in the challenge. The team is honoured to accept two (2) awards on behalf of the City.We cannot wait to see what 2023 brings!
