The way we live is having a serious impact on our environment. Our state of the environment report shows our environment is under pressure in many places – in our towns and cities, rivers, oceans and on the land.
Protecting our environment and transitioning New Zealand to a sustainable low-emissions future is one of the Government’s top three priorities. To help do this changes are being proposed to a number of rules and regulations over the rest of this year. These will cover a range of resource management, waste minimisation, climate change and freshwater initiatives. Together, these proposals will help us better protect our environment and address the issues raised in Environment Aotearoa 2019.
