2022 is the year we’re giving it some jandal on accelerating decarbonisation. Rotorua is the place and picking up the pace is the theme.

2022 will see New Zealand with high COVID vaccination rates, freedoms to move about, a real appetite to get back to business after the enormous disruption of the last couple of years and, most importantly, a priority focus on decarbonising.

We’re delighted this year to be partnering the Bioenergy Association as well as Sustainability Society for our flagship event and with everyone adapting to life with Covid, the conference is set to break all records – yes, even those set by last year’s bonanza event. 

Our 2021 conference in Christchurch exceeded 180 registrations. Working with BANZ as well as TSS should boost that and we’re optimistic of surpassing the 200 delegate threshold.

The June conference dates mean we’ll have new NDCs for New Zealand, which put even greater emphasis on the need to reduce emissions to reduce exposure to international carbon prices, a published national Emissions Reduction Plan (scheduled for May release) and real progress on CNGP (Carbon Neutral Government Programme).

Anyone and everyone interested in decarbonising New Zealand needs to join us in giving it some jandal.
