'Environment Aotearoa 2015' is a joint report by the Ministry for the Environment and Statistics New Zealand.

'Environment Aotearoa 2015' provides an overall picture of our environment across the air, atmosphere and climate, fresh water, land, and marine domains and shows interactions between each domain. It presents the human and natural pressures that cause changes to the state of these domains and the impacts these changes have on our environment, economy and way of life.

Following the release of Environment Aotearoa 2015 and Environmental indicators Te taiao Aotearoa in October 2015, we have made some revisions to correct or clarify information in the report and indicators. See www.stats.govt.nz/ercorrections for details of the revisions.
