It was an inspiring and insightful day in Wellington. Some of our favourite quotes from the sessions:
"We are all ambassadors for this issue.... it is about changing conversations" - Justin Lester, Mayor of Wellington
"We have to avoid siloed thinking and consider collective impact", "Change happens at the speed of trust, we need to provide certainty around a direction of travel" - David Meates, Chief Executive, Canterbury and West Coast District Health Boards
"There is a need to build competency in boards around emissions and sustainability" - Mike Sang, Chief Executive, Ngai Tahu
"Procurement used to be about lowest cost and shortest time, long term contracts enable innovation, we need sustainability in all our relationships" - Kirsten Patterson, Chief Executive, Institute of Directors
"Millennials will soon comprise 75% of the workforce, and they expect you to bake sustainability into your organisation" - Gerri Ward, Sustainability Manager, Z Energy
The digital toolbox with all the sessions and other useful information will be available to delegates shortly.
Thanks to all our sponsors (BP, EECA, Hyundai, Meridian, Enviromark) and thanks for all the delegate feedback. We are starting to plan Net Zero New Zealand:The second Emissions Workshop and will keep you posted as the plan develops.
