Environmental Sustainability

NZCIC recognises Aotearoa New Zealand and the world is in a climate emergency, and we are committed to supporting the construction sector to improve our environmental performance and reduce our emissions.

NZCIC supports the  Construction Sector Environment Roadmap for Action which identifies four priorities:

  • Changing mindsets by improving awareness of and commitment to addressing, accounting for and improving environmental outcomes
  • Scaling up the sector’s capability and capacity in environmentally sustainable construction
  • Incentivising and aligning to ensure environmentally sustainable building practices are facilitated
  • Demonstrating impact by measuring construction sector progress in contributing to Aotearoa New Zealand’s climate and environmental goals.

NZCIC has standing Sustainability Working Group which has developed a position on reducing embodied and operational carbon in our built environment.  If you would like to comment on the carbon statement or contribute to the Sustainability Working Group, please contact  Tania Williams tania.williams@engineeringnz.org
