July 7 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm


With the built environment responsible for about 20% of New Zealand’s carbon emissions, we’re all keen to build more sustainably. It’s increasingly clear that using engineered timber is a great way to significantly reduce the carbon emissions from construction, but what’s the business case behind the trend? 
For builders such as Naylor Love, the challenge is to get project stakeholders passionate about the potential of timber early enough to get it incorporated into the design. Pictures of inspiring wooden buildings can only get you so far, at some stage the conversation turns to numbers. How much of an impact will it have on carbon emissions, and what’s it going to cost?
Hear from Scott Watson, Business Development Director at Naylor Love who will discuss the benefits of building with engineered timber and will present the Naylor Love carbon emissions calculator. Developed by Naylor Love with sustainability consultants thinkstep-anz, this simple calculator compares the carbon emissions of various building materials.
Suddenly, achieving net-zero carbon emissions from construction by 2050 doesn’t seem like such an insurmountable challenge.
