At part of her work as Director of Environment and Innovation at Waterfront Toronto, Lisa directed the development and implementation of performance based expectations for builder partners on the waterfront. These green building requirements were periodically updated to ensure they represented market transformation. The collaborative process engaged major stakeholders including the development industry to test feasibility and adoption. In 2012, this initiative won a Globe Award for urban leadership.
