The total energy consumption of commercial and institutional buildings in Canada accounts for the production of 11% of our national greenhouse gas emissions (Office of Energy Efficiency, 2013)

As a leader in sustainability, The Town of Ajax has implemented a number of strategies to help reduce the environmental impact caused by municipal buildings.

Since 2008, the Town mandated a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for new buildings. LEED certification is done through the Canada Green Building Council (CAGBC) and in order to achieve accreditation a building must meet strict environmental criteria in the following categories:

  • Energy and Atmosphere
  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Innovation in Design
  • Materials & Resources
  • Regional Priorities
  • Sustainable Sites
  • Water Efficiency

 In Ajax the following municipal buildings have been designed to meet the following LEED criteria:

  • Audley Recreation Centre, 1955 Audley Rd. N- LEED Silver
  • Carruthers Marsh Pavilion, 55 Ashbury Blvd.- LEED Silver
  • Fire Headquarters, 900 Salem Rd N - LEED Gold
  • Operations Centre, 800 Salem Rd N-LEED
  • Greenwood Discovery Pavilion, 2290 Greenwood Rd.- not LEED but has many “green features incorporated within its design”
