  Valuing Sustainability fact sheets

This series is part of a larger BRANZ study on placing a value on sustainability and resilience features in New Zealand housing. The overall project aims to provide an evidence base to help builders, designers and specifiers to make better-informed decisions about investing in sustainability features

At present, the Valuing Sustainability series comprises three factsheets:

  • Cost-effectiveness of adding resilience features in New Zealand houses
  • Incorporating universal design features in a new build or renovation
  • Cost-effectiveness of water conservation measures and rainwater tanks in New Zealand houses
