Symposium: Improving housing standards for co-benefits


The built environment sector is one of the largest producers of carbon emissions in New Zealand. How do we get the sector to carbon zero by 2050? As part of the 2020 Public Health Summer School the NZ Centre for Sustainable Cities is hosting a symposium to answer this question.

Date: Tuesday 11 February 2020
Venue: University of Otago, Wellington, 23a Mein St, Newtown, Wellington

Improving housing standards for co-benefits for energy efficiency, carbon mitigation and health

To ensure that New Zealand is carbon neutral by 2050 we need to have made substantial progress by 2030. This symposium will bring together local and international experts to highlight the major contributions improving building standards could make towards achieving carbon neutrality, and other co-benefits including energy efficiency and health equity.

Come along to this one-day symposium to find out more about how the built environment sector NZ can transition to a carbon zero future and the part you can play.
