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.

World Green Building Week is an annual event that champions better, greener buildings for everyone, everywhere.

This year’s theme for World Green Building Week is #BetterHomesNZ.

We’re encouraging people everywhere to show us what home is to you.

Send us your photos and be in to win from a total prize pool of $1000 Westpac Pre-paid Cards!
