Thank you message from Water New Zealand

Ka ora te wai, ka ora te whenua, ka ora ngā tāngata’

‘If the water is healthy, the land is healthy, the people are healthy’

Thank you to everyone who helped make the Stormwater Conference 2023 in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland such a huge success. We particularly appreciate the support of our exhibitors, partners and sponsors.

Over the years the Stormwater Conference has gone from strength to strength and 2023 was a record breaker, with almost 600 delegates.
It’s now clear that we need to take stormwater management seriously to ensure a more climate-resilient future.
With that I am already looking forward to welcoming you to Stormwater 2024 – this time in the capital city, Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington.

So please mark the dates (15 – 17 May 2024) and keep an eye out for updates. We’ll be bringing you more details over the coming months.

Zero Carbon Event with Ekos!

The 2023 Stormwater conference is proud to be a certified Zero Carbon Event with Ekos! The conference is all about creating sustainable outcomes. At the same time we acknowledge that such events have environmental impacts. Therefore we have taken a number of steps to improve the sustainability of our events. This year we will be measuring and offsetting the emissions from presenter and organizational travel, vehicle use, electricity and waste. The certified carbon credits we are purchasing to offset our emissions will be sourced from projects that grow and protect forests in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands and help to deliver climate resilience, waterways protection, erosion control, biodiversity, conservation and community economic development. The carbon footprint excludes the travel of any participants, and we’d love those of you who will be joining us to consider what you could do to minimize or offset your impacts as well.
