Green Speak Waikato

Green Speak Waikato

Sustainable Business Network and NZGBC Waikato Forum bring you an evening of New perspectives on waste in the construction sector.

Construction and demolition waste are reported by BRANZ to make up to 50% of all landfill waste in New Zealand. This is waste on a grand scale, waste of resources, waste of consumption, waste of energy. There must be a better way. Join our experts to hear how some construction sites are managing their waste to reduce this statistic and Sustainable Business Network’s advice to the sector.

Your host for the evening is Amanda Bryan, Sustainability Leader for the Built Environment at Jacobs.

Circular economy perspective to designing out waste in the construction sector

James Griffin, General Manager Projects and Advisory, Sustainable Business Network
