"Throughout the world, the pressure is on for the construction sector to get serious about reducing its impact on the planet, both in carbon used in the creation of buildings and dwellings, and also in the energy used to keep them warm, or cool throughout their lifespan.
With climate change being taken more seriously by Governments World Wide, in the past decade, construction has become a target for legislation designed to curb its perceived wastefulness, it’s impact on global supply chains and its influence on future energy needs for communities and nations.
These pressures come at the same time as Governments around the world choose aggressive infrastructure spending as the way to get through the Covid-19 recession, actions that suggest massive growth in carbon-use in the short to mid-term, right around the globe.
So the pressure is on, both to grow, fast, but also to reduce materials, waste and energy at an unprecedented rate.
Currently, construction accounts for around 20 percent of New Zealand’s carbon emissions through the energy and materials used in buildings.
The recent Climate Change Commission draft report found that buildings are responsible for about 3 percent of the long-lived gases emitted by New Zealand in 2018.
The New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC), however, uses a consumption view to say that the built environment contributes a fifth of New Zealand's emissions when you assign emissions released in manufacturing construction materials to the buildings instead of the industrial manufacturers.
