Construction is booming. The use of eco-labels is soaring. New Zealanders’ interest in sustainability is building. Green financing schemes are surging. Zero Carbon legislation is rapidly approaching.
And so is the Green Building Council’s Products and Materials Forum.
This year’s Product and Materials Forum will be packed with the latest updates on a broad range of eco-labels, covering key areas such as waste, carbon, lifecycle assessments, and responsibly sourced timber. Hundreds of suppliers, specifiers and installers will be at the AECOM Building in Auckland on 21 March for this essential briefing, which is free for all members of the Green Building Council.
