In a world of increasing populations and finite resources, sustainability is crucial for continued growth and the benefits it brings for humanity. This reality sits at the heart of the international shift to more sustainable outcomes.
Within New Zealand, two core factors, in addition to social pressure, will increasingly drive demand for sustainable construction. The first is our Paris Climate Agreement commitments. The second is the political consensus that our waste management framework needs to drive more efficient use of resources.
The message is clear – knowledge of the sustainability challenge and the tools available to meet this challenge is essential for everyone within the construction industry.
