Green Building Tours
Green Energy Doors Open 2013 is an annual, single-day showcase of the province-wide green energy economy.
Where does MEC fit in?
For over a decade we've been "greening" our buildings – making design and materials decisions based on environmental considerations. The Ottawa and Winnipeg stores were the first and second retail buildings in Canada to comply with Canada's C2000 Green Building Standard – a Natural Resources Canada program that acknowledges buildings that achieve a 50% reduction in energy consumption over conventional structures. With every new store we build or lease, we aim to maximize efficiency and minimize environmental impacts.
How are we opening our doors?
MEC Burlington is opening our doors to give free Green Building Tours. Take a 30 minute tour of our store with a member from our Environmental Integrity Committee. They will stop at key points in our store. Take a climb to our roof to check out our solar panels.
