One Earth launched the Eco-Strata Guide for reducing the ecological footprint of existing multi-family dwellings in Metro Vancouver. The project is focused on the opportunities for advancing sustainability, particularly as a result of economies of scale. Launched in April 8th at a private event, the practical guidebook (and website) assists strata councils, cooperatives, developers and management companies. Partners include the Condominium Home Owners’ Association (CHOA) with funding from the Real Estate Foundation of BC. The action ideas outlined in the guide offer win-win solutions for existing apartments, townhouses and condos. They help conserve natural resources as well as provide significant economic savings. Download the PDF, 3.8MB or dialogue at www.eco-strata.com, a space for sharing insights, lessons and resources. For more information, contact Emmanuel Prinet.
