A Zegna jacket became an argument for sustainability in the hands of Auckland mayor and super city mayoral candidate John Banks at business leaders’ breakfast hosted by Deloitte.
The jacket, made of recycled material, plus recycled blanket and his 1930s-era Horace Massey house all pointed to the mayor’s passion for reusing materials, he told the group.
“I am as guilty as any of us of destroying things, but when the Government tells me they could mine conservation areas, I push back.”
He answered questions from the group, saying he had done 12-month listening tour around the region to prepare himself for his bid to lead the Auckland super city.
“Now I clearly understand Auckland.”
He said his campaign is based on optimism, jobs, prosperity and inclusiveness.
