Monthly stakeholder engagement updates

Engaging meaningfully with New Zealanders is at the core of our mahi. Each month we provide our Commissioners with an update on who we have been speaking to across different sectors – our updates for June-September 2020 can now be viewed below. Publishing is part of our commitment to transparency.

The reports are broken down into engagement by sector and outline engagements by the Commission Board and the Senior Leadership team.

Developing our advice on policy direction

The Government is required to develop an emissions reduction plan, outlining what it intends to do to make sure the first emissions budget is met. Our role is to provide independent evidence-based advice to Government on the direction of policy in the emissions reduction plan.

Our first package of advice will include recommendations for the actions needed to put Aotearoa on track to achieve future emissions budgets and help the transition to a low emissions economy.

This paper outlines the Commission’s approach to developing our advice on policy direction.
