Improving our buildings, cutting carbon is a collection of essays by a wide range of experts in the areas of decarbonising new and existing buildings while maintaining health and wellbeing. The book, from the New Zealand Centre for Sustainable Cities, highlights both achievements and major gaps in policy in Aotearoa. At the launch, Dr Geoff Bertram will comment on how New Zealand’s built environment sector can reduce its carbon emissions and explore the challenges and opportunities of the transition to a zero carbon future.

This talk is part of our Summer Talks series.
