Focus is on stories of what communities are doing on the ground to achieve Green Value

The Real Estate Foundation of British Columbia (REFBC) is pursuing a strategy to persuade local governments on Vancouver Island to adopt “green value” approaches to planning for and accommodating settlement growth.

“The Foundation uses the term Green Value as a generic reference to use and conservation of land and real estate that achieves social and economic goals while minimizing harmful effects on ecological assets,” reports Tim Pringle, Execuitive Director.

“Under its Green Value strategy, the REFBC is identifying case studies that celebrate leading examples of real estate development projects in Vancouver Island communities. These case studies illustrate how green value approaches have been implemented, and include a review of the benefits/liabilities of each project.”
