The industry has evolved and integrated green building practices across the board, which has been the success of many working towards this goal.

NISP® Canada is a program working with actors in the industrial sector to develop shared business-to-business relationships to mimic symbiotic relationships in nature (waste equals food) resulting in waste reductions and reduction in carbon emissions.
