This conference isn’t about why we need to reduce emissions, we’re way beyond that. This is about the ‘how to’ with an outstanding line up of speakers focusing on the practicalities of emissions reduction.

Most people seem on board with the need to address carbon emissions now. We’re soon to have a Climate Change Commission and many organisations are saying the right things. The need now is to move beyond saying the right things to doing something positive about it. What New Zealand businesses really need now is practical insight. This is where this conference, and indeed EMANZ members, come in.

The two day conference is being jointly run by EMANZ and The Sustainability Society and includes sessions on: decarbonisation, fuels, the built environment, the circular economy, industrial emissions, the Living Building Challenge, collaboration, continuous improvement, water efficiency, waste minimisation and future electricity systems. If you’re interested in a sustainable future, you’re interested in this conference.

The conference is running in Wellington on 29 & 30 May at The Harbourside Function Centre. The full speaker line-up and registration links can be found through the EMANZ website, https://www.emanz.org.nz/emanz-conference-2019


*Te Radar appears by arrangement with Johnson & Laird Management.
