Zero-carbon built environment #1: A carbon budget for New Zealand houses (2020)

Product Description

Constructing lower-carbon buildings is an important part of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to address climate change. The BRANZ carbon budget project calculated the amount of greenhouse gases that a New Zealand house could allowably emit while still moving towards New Zealand’s 2050 net-zero carbon goal. The project also found that the emissions from typically-sized new-build detached houses today exceeds the carbon budget by several multiples.
