Advice to Government

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

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

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

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 to government on topics that we feel it is important to draw attention to - or as part of feeding into work happening on climate related legislation.  Our independence means we can hold the Government to account and focus on the bigger picture – we are in this for the long haul.
