Sustainable building certification won't be in Auckland

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:17 pm on 7 August 2020

Auckland Council has back tracked on including sustainable building certification on its Land Information Memoranda or LIM reports.

Earlier this year they gave an undertaking to have a home-fit check on them, but say the difficult decision has been made withdraw those plans citing concerns around the use of third party data as well as financial challenges.

Jesse speaks to the Green Building Council chief executive, Andrew Eagles about what home-fit certification is and why they want it on LIMs.
