“MBIE is asking for feedback on 2 documents which will start the conversation on changes that could be made to help reduce emissions in the building and construction sector,” says General Manager Building Systems Performance John Sneyd.
“The Whole of Life Embodied Carbon Emissions Framework looks at reducing embodied carbon emissions across a building’s whole life cycle, from the production of building materials, all the way through to what happens to the building when it’s at the end of its life.
“The Transforming Operational Efficiency Framework focuses on reducing carbon emissions related to the operation of buildings, such as the use of heating, cooling, lighting, ventilation, and other similar items,” John says.
The consultation on the 2 frameworks are open, and will run until 7:00pm on 30th September. Submissions can be made through the survey at mbie.govt.nz/bfcc or by emailing BfCC@mbie.govt.nz
