Pathway to zero carbon for buildings with Andrew Eagles
webinar - May 22, 2020 at 2pm - 3pm
The OECD and other commentators state the New Zealand building code is not fit-for-purpose. The zero-carbon act has passed. Our buildings and homes (new and existing buildings) are now on a pathway to change fundamentally.
Andrew Eagles and Dr Kate Meyer will talk through what is happening across Aotearoa to drive change, how our buildings are changing, and the vision for a zero-carbon built environment and what this means for you.
If you work in construction or have an interest in property, this webinar is for you.
