Net Zero Together – How the water industry can measure, manage & mitigate carbon.
May 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pmFree
Hosted by Water New Zealand and the CIWEM Aotearoa | New Zealand branch
Please note that this event will start at 5:30 pm New Zealand Time | 6:30 am BST.
CIWEM and Water New Zealand are delighted to be able to share a fascinating session detailing how Auckland Council’s Healthy Waters department intend to take actions to meet the commitment outlined in Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri (Auckland’s Climate Plan) for Auckland to halve its emissions by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050.
With a population that continues to grow and a climate which has changed rapidly over the last decade, the water cycle has been directly impacted and faces further instances of drought, more extreme weather events, rising sea levels and increased coastal flooding unless greenhouse gas emissions are dramatically reduced.
This webinar will provide an overview of how Healthy Waters are approaching carbon reduction through innovative means to build and operate a low carbon water system.
Our speakers will share the journey so far and seek to inspire us all to go further and faster to meet Auckland’s goal of being net zero:
