The Environmental Reporting Act organises the environment into five domains: air, atmosphere and climate, fresh water, land, and marine. The Ministry for the Environment and Statistics New Zealand publish a report on one of the domains every six months and a report on all of the domains every three years.
The Environmental Reporting Regulations set the topics to be reported on in environmental reports. Topics identify key issues within each domain.
This document lists the topics for each domain and provides a description of each.
