The construction sector is a significant contributor to carbon emissions, from producing materials to constructing buildings and the energy used in buildings. The sector needs to play a major part if New Zealand is to reach its climate change goals, including being net-zero carbon by 2050.
As part of its online Towards High Performance webinar series, the Construction Sector Accord is hosting a webinar on how to reduce carbon emissions in the construction sector. In this free webinar, speakers will discuss a variety of key issues including the New Zealand Government Procurement’s recently published Procurement guide to reducing carbon emissions in building and construction; carbon emissions and the building life cycle; embodied carbon versus operational carbon; reduction targets and sustainable design; and adaptive re-use to drive change.
Listen to experts from government and industry as they share lessons learnt and best practice to improve our sector.
