Here at Craft Homes, we do our best to stay up to date in sustainability practices not just within the eco homes and building industries, but on a national—and often even on global—scale. Currently, there are a number of promising nationwide initiatives being implemented across the board to promote a healthier, more sustainable New Zealand, from new freshwater regulations, the proposed phase-out of single-use plastics, and the Jobs for Nature programme.
One enormous government initiative that particularly caught our eye is the One Billion Trees programme, with an ambitious goal of planting 1,000,000,000 trees across the country by 2028 through government funding and grants. Yes, you counted right, that’s nine zeros!
How does the government plan to achieve this lofty goal and how will this positively affect our country’s sustainability efforts? Read on to find out!
