According to the International Energy Agency, the buildings and construction industries consume 40% of the world’s energy and contribute 40% of the world’s carbon emissions as well. Running a building itself is extremely energy-intensive. If not properly maintained, buildings develop conditions such as the “Sick Building Syndrome”, which produces dire consequences for the occupants of the building, the organizations to whom the occupants belong, and of course, the building itself. This is where Belnor Engineering comes into the picture. We strive to help reduce Canada’s carbon emissions and help combat the effects of global warming and climate change in our country, the United States, and around the world.
Belnor Engineering has been already in the green and sustainable building industry for decades, providing sustainable, green, and energy-efficient solutions to North America’s top brands and institutions. Our motto and mission have always continuously been to build green cities, one green building at a time.
Through our work to both create and maintain energy-efficient conditions for improving building occupant health & safety, and indoor air quality through innovative building & laboratory controls systems, and HVAC & automation systems, we’ve been able to help “greenify” North America’s built environment. This includes applications in regular tall commercial office towers to niche, critical airflow spaces, such as high-tech hospitals, research institutions, and large-scale laboratories, spanning industry, academia, and government.
We realize business has a lot of power to make positive change. This power could be used as a tool to not only fight climate change but to also come up with all kinds of sustainable solutions for the betterment of our society. And as an organization, we consider ourselves responsible for the environmental and social consequences of our actions. Therefore, we see this power as both a privilege and an honour, which is why we decided to "be the change" we wanted to see by using it to make positive social and environmental impact on a larger scale, humbly offering our contributions to our only planet and doing our part to help make the world a better, safer, and healthier place for generations to come.
