With the built environment contributing nearly 40% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions1, awareness and demand for more sustainable materials are increasing. The MBIE led ‘Building for Climate Change’ programme framework proposes setting mandatory reporting and measurement requirements for whole-of-life carbon emissions, with a sinking cap on Embodied Carbon. This pending regulatory requirement, in addition to people and businesses now seeking increased sustainability in the homes and buildings they buy or lease, is driving industry change towards more sustainable building solutions.
The awareness of mass timber as a construction option is increasing but there is currently no effective monitoring of the lead and lag indicators of uptake in New Zealand. Your input to this survey will help BRANZ by providing valuable feedback on the current uptake and barriers to the use of engineered wood products (EWPs) and will help us track the construction sector contributions to meeting New Zealand climate change commitments.
Taking part in this survey is completely voluntary and will take about 10 minutes of your time to complete. Your views and insights are important to us and will remain confidential.
