The built environment has a profound impact on the natural environment; contributing upwards of 12% of all of Canada's greenhouse gas emissions. The green building movement, therefore, offers an unprecedented opportunity to respond to the most important challenges facing the natural world. The aim of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is to create rating tools that recognize achievement in high health, energy and environmental performance in the built environment. LEED is an internationally recognized rating system. They evaluate environmental performance from a whole building perspective, providing a definitive standard for what constitutes a green building in design, construction, and operation. The Vanguard uses 35% renewable energy, 20% less water than a standard building, 30% regional construction material, and 20% post-consumer material. This means The Vanguard is eligible for LEED's prestigious Gold Certification and if awarded it will be one of only 23 LEED Gold Certified buildings in the city. The Vanguard's own investment in the future ensures it will have lasting appeal for years to come.
