Topics for environmental reporting


Warning message

Submissions for this form are closed.

The Government sought views on which topics will be reported on in environmental reports. Topics identify the things we want to know about the environment for each of the five environmental domains we report on (air, atmosphere and climate, fresh water, land, and marine). 

This consultation will help the Minister for the Environment and the Minister of Statistics decide which topics to include in regulations under the Environmental Reporting Act 2015.

For more information about this consultation read our Topics for environmental reporting: Consultation document. It includes a background to what we considered when developing the list of proposed topics, and explanations to help you understand what the topics could cover.

The consultation on topics for environmental reporting has now closed. If you have any queries on the process, please email
