Input to new Building for Climate Change programme
Friday 11 Sep 2020Public consultation has opened on proposed changes to help reduce carbon emissions in New Zealand’s building and construction sector. Information about the consultation process is available on the MBIE website.
MBIE is asking for feedback on two documents that will set the course for these changes. The first document, The Whole of Life Embodied Carbon Emissions Framework, looks at reducing embodied carbon emissions across a building’s whole life cycle, from the production of building materials, all the way through to what happens to the building when it’s at the end of its life.
The second document, The Transforming Operational Efficiency Framework focuses on reducing carbons emissions related to the operation of buildings, such as the use of heating, cooling, lighting, ventilation, and other similar items.
As these frameworks are likely to have a future impact on the Building Act and Building Code, they’re keen to hear your views on what we’re proposing, and learn from your experiences, so we can make sure we get this right.
Further details on the process can be found here. The consultation on the two frameworks will run until 7:00 PM on 30 September, 2020.
