Cost benefit analysis of Building for Climate Change amendments to the Building Act 2004

Report for the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment
The cost benefit analysis (CBA) of proposed changes to the Building Act to support waste and emissions reduction has now been released and the Bill to enable the changes introduced. The CBA was prepared by a Sapere team led by David Moore. We are pleased the team was able to support the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment with its analysis of the changes and its regulatory impact statement. The team enjoyed working with MBIE, the Energy Efficiency & Conservation Authority, the Ministry for the Environment and the Ministry for Housing and Urban Development in order to analyse the expected impacts to different stakeholders and emissions reductions resulting from the proposed changes. Thanks to David Moore, Angus White, Corina Comendant, William Li, Michelle Hall, April Chiu, Zabard Hartmann and Lockie Woon who helped meet timeframes with the challenges of COVID – a great cross-office collaboration.
