We’re already seeing the impacts of climate change and it’s not just an environmental issue – there are social and economic implications too.
We will work closely with iwi/Māori, businesses, NGOs and the public to make the transition to a low emissions and climate resilient economy. We want all New Zealanders to be part of the conversation.
What to expect
Zero Carbon Bill
The Government has signalled that it will introduce a Zero Carbon Bill in late-2018 to provide a vision for how we transition to a sustainable and climate resilient future.
The Bill will see New Zealand put a bold new emissions reduction target into law, and establish an independent Climate Change Commission to keep us on track to meet our goals.
Consultation on the Zero Carbon Bill will open in late May. Information on the Bill’s proposals will be released at that time.
