Ministry for the Environment welcomes Climate Leaders Coalition
The Ministry for the Environment welcomes the new Climate Leaders Coalition of 60 businesses pledging to reduce emissions and play a leadership role on New Zealand’s transition to a low emissions economy.
Secretary for the Environment Vicky Robertson says the strong stance from the CEOs of businesses, that together contribute around 50 per cent of New Zealand’s emissions, is a significant step forward for New Zealand as we move to address climate change and meet our national commitments under the Paris Agreement.
This announcement follows the Farming Leaders Group commitment to work alongside the government to achieve net zero emissions from agriculture by 2050.
“If we are going to tackle the big environmental challenges that we face as a country, we need everyone playing a part – business, our farmers, government and individuals.
