2022 Building Nations - Walk the Green Road

Building Nations is New Zealand’s leading infrastructure conference, where influential decision-makers gather annually for a fresh shot of motivation and inspiration.

The two-day event provides the opportunity for the public and private sectors to come together to find new ways to look at complex challenges through collaboration. Building Nations ‘leads the leaders’ into a future where New Zealand is a global exemplar of smart and sustainable infrastructure that raises the standard of living for all New Zealanders.

Last year's theme looked back from the vantage point of 2050, where industry leaders discussed key issues like achieving net-zero greenhouse gases, harnessing emerging digital technologies, and climate change and sustainable infrastructure. T+T was at the centre of the action with our panel: No Road, A Green Road or A Divided Road – How will our Zero Carbon transition unfold, and how should we prepare?

James Hughes, T+T Technical Director, Climate and Resilience facilitated the session, with Alec Tang, Kāinga Ora Director - Sustainability, Dr Lyn Carter, Kaitohutohu Chief Kai Tahu Advisor to the CE, Otago Regional Council, and Brad Olsen JP, Infometrics Principal Economist and Director.

In the lead-up to Building Nations, James penned a thought leadership piece on the transition to Zero Carbon, and a hero video was created to speak to T+T's vision of a zero emissions future.

A specially created microsite was built as part of the marketing campaign to house our content - head to www.walkthegreenroad.co.nz to see more.
