WELCOME TO THE CLIMATE CHANGE COMMISSION.

We deal in the facts about climate change and it’s our intent to create positive change for Aotearoa and the world.

We provide independent, evidence-based advice to government to help Aotearoa transition to a low emissions and climate-resilient future.

We were established under the Climate Change Response (Zero Carbon) Amendment Act. Our Commissioners were announced by the Minister for Climate Change, Hon James Shaw, on 17 Dec 2019.
