SUSTAINABILITY


IPWEA NZ exists to advance best practice infrastructure asset management to support thriving communities in New Zealand.  The infrastructure we build today will shape tomorrow's communities.

Sustainable infrastructure refers to designing, building, and operating of the structural elements and networks that support human society, in ways that do not diminish the social, economic and ecological processes required to maintain human equity, diversity, and the functionality of natural systems.

About Sustainable Infrastructure

Governments worldwide are beginning to make legislative changes to address and correct our impact on the natural world.  The public and private sectors are now acting upon the awareness and acceptance that our climate requires us to urgently reassess the way we relate to the natural world. 

A step change is urgently needed in public policy and private investment decisions so that climate resilience is an automatic and critical investment consideration for all sectors of the physical economy. 

IPWEA NZ are committed to being part of the solution by encouraging the conversation, collaboration and action to advance sustainability in our industry.
