Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time, and since coming into Government, we’ve made tackling climate change a priority. We’ve passed the landmark Zero Carbon Act, banned new offshore oil and gas exploration, worked with farmers on a world-leading agreement to reduce agricultural emissions, invested in innovative low carbon technology and more to help us meet our climate goals.
Because of this work, New Zealand is on track to bend the curve of our emissions downwards for the first time in history.
Now, we’re taking the next steps, laying the foundations for lasting action, while creating jobs and supporting our recovery. We’re supporting schools, hospitals and businesses to make the switch to cleaner energy, and investing in low carbon transport, as we move forward with our plan for New Zealand to be carbon neutral by 2050.
