The Detail – a podcast from RNZ/ Newsroom: Another generation of unsustainable housing


A Podcast from RNZ and Newsroom

This Episode –  11 February 2020

The RNZ website notes:

Clean and green might be New Zealand’s self-claimed slogan but when it comes to building houses, it’s a very different story.

Massey University and the Building Research Association have recently revealed that most new-builds in the country are putting out carbon emissions five times higher than the levels set by the Paris climate change agreement.

And that puts New Zealand firmly behind most other OECD countries in keeping things green when it comes to building and running houses.MORE AT LINK


However, it would be interesting to hear other views

According to Newsroom,

Newsroom has been commissioned by the RNZ/NZ On Air Innovation Fund to produce a new daily news podcast designed to explain the stories behind the headlines. 

Called ‘The Detail’, it aims to help listeners dive deeper into the big stories to help give an understanding of what’s really going on. We will pick out the news that matters and explain it in detail and in context.

The Detail will be fronted by journalists Sharon Brettkelly and Alex Ashton, and produced by Alexia Russell. We will be drawing on not only Newsroom’s award-winning journalists, but the best reporters from throughout the country; along with experts in their fields.
