    Dunedin Council's hitting back at claims they're a top offender - for building emissions

    Dunedin Council's hitting back at claims they're a top offender - for building emissions


    The Green Building Council's released a list of the country's worst-performing councils.

    But Dunedin Council property services manager Dave Bainbridge-Zafar says the assessment only counts its Civic Centre building.

    He says it makes incorrect assumptions - including that the building's only used 48 hours a week.

    Bainbridge-Zafar says they've made sweeping sustainability improvements to other Council facilities - but the 40-year-old Civic Building is a challenge.
