Climate & Resources

SBC members work together on projects across freight, energy, water and waste, and provide a business perspective on how New Zealand can transition to a low carbon economy.

Likewise, resource efficiency is increasingly important for businesses as awareness of sustainability issues grow and stakeholders and consumers demand more careful use of natural resources.

SBC is leading a number of projects on climate and resources.
