World Green Building Week 2018

24 September – 30 September 2018

#BetterHomesNZ #WGBW2018

World Green Building Week is back for 2018 and will run from 24 September until the 30 September, across the globe.

This year, the week is all about making our homes better, and the team here at the New Zealand Green Building Council has an array of events across Aotearoa to help the shift to warmer, drier, more efficient homes for everyone in our beautiful country.

New Zealand homes aren’t good enough. Over 700,000 of our homes are poorly insulated. And 40 per cent of our homes are damp and mouldy. Besides being bad news for our health, unhealthy homes are also bad news for our bank balance, as they cost more to heat.

But this is changing. Tens of thousands of new family homes are now set to be safer, healthier, happier places to be, after being built better. And the New Zealand Government now has a chance to build thousands of new homes, through KiwiBuild, to the standards New Zealanders deserve.

We have events all around New Zealand, throughout World Green Building Week, and everyone is welcome.
