Advice to Government

Part of our role includes providing the Government with proactive advice on key issues

It is our job to provide independent, evidence-based advice

We provide independent advice on matters we believe will impact Aotearoa New Zealand's ability to meet its climate change goals.

On this page you'll find draft and final reports, submissions to select committees, and other advice and feedback we give to Government.

Our core work programme is set out in legislation, and requires us to deliver specific functions within set timeframes – like setting emissions budgets, and advising the government on how to manage climate change impacts and effects. We also provide independent advice on topics that we feel it is important to draw attention to, or as part of feeding into work happening on climate related legislation.
