#WGBW2020 Social procurement: a massive untapped green gamechanger?

If you missed the live webinar or would like to watch it again, the recording is available as an online video here. Please share with your friends and colleagues.

Aotearoa, and the rest of the world, is facing two substantial challenges. We need an effective economic stimulus. And we also need to slash our climate pollution.

These twin challenges will not be solved unless healthy, less polluting places for people are put at the heart of the solutions.

This is the most important time ever for the building and construction sector in Aotearoa. Our sector has a key role to play in tackling era-defining problems. And that’s what makes this year’s World Green Building Week so vital.

Hundreds of billions of dollars are spent by companies and government every year. Why is only a fraction being used wisely, to drive positive change? How can we fully realise the enormous potential for social and green procurement?
