World Green Building Week kicks off 23 September

19 Sep 2019

The team at the New Zealand Green Building Council has been working on some great events across the country to commemorate World Green Building Week, taking place 23-29 September 2019.

This year’s theme is #BuildingLife and focuses on reducing carbon emissions from all stages of a building’s lifecycle.

Resene has been a founding member and corporate sponsor of the New Zealand Green Building Council since it started.

You can easily get involved by picking up your smartphone or dusting off your SLR and entering the 4th annual World Green Building Week Photographic Competition. Sponsored by Resene, categories include both a Student and an Open category — celebrating the best images in each category.

But there are lots more events taking place too. Check out a full listing of what on and how you can get involved here.
