The Climate Change Commission first package of advice is open for formal consultation.
They will be consulting with the public from 1 February – 28 March 2021 on a draft of their first package of advice to Government on the actions it must take to reach net-zero by 2050, and ensure a transition to a low-emissions, climate resilient and thriving Aotearoa.
What will the first package of advice cover?
Specifically, this package of advice is made up of:
- The proposed first three emissions budgets and guidance on the first emissions reduction plan, advising the Government on how the emissions budgets could be met
- Whether Aotearoa’s first Nationally Determined Contribution is compatible with contributing to the global efforts to limit warming above 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels
- Advice on what potential reductions in biogenic methane might be needed in the future (this is not a review of current targets).
