Background: Building industry emissions need to be halved in the next 10 years if New Zealand is to achieve its 2050 carbon target. Transitioning to Low Carbon Construction will be a critical factor in achieving this outcome, helping reduce the 20% carbon emissions currently sent into the atmosphere from the existing building and construction sector.
