Draft sector position on mitigation

Published: Thursday, July 12, 2018

LGNZ has recently undertaken work to develop a draft local government sector position on climate change mitigation.

The purpose of the draft sector position is to signal the ambition that local government has for, and the commitments it makes to contributing to, the overall effort to reduce emissions in New Zealand. It also sets out the further support that local authorities need in order to enhance their contributions to emissions reductions.

The document has been developed with input from LGNZ’s Mitigation Reference Group, which is comprised of elected members and officers from a range of councils from across the country.

LGNZ’s National Council has requested that the draft sector position be available to councils for consultation and feedback to allow finalisation.

Please provide your feedback in writing to Grace Hall, LGNZ Senior Policy Advisor at grace.hall@lgnz.co.nz by no later than 30 August 2018.
