Advice for preparation of Emissions Reduction Plans

To ensure that Aotearoa New Zealand keeps moving towards its climate targets, we give advice to the Minister every five years on the direction of the Government's next emissions reduction plan.

This advice helps the Government set policies and strategies to meet Aotearoa New Zealand's emissions reduction targets.

We first provided this advice in Ināia tonu nei in May 2021, and the Government responded by setting its first emissions reduction plan for 2022–2025. We released our advice on the direction of policy for the Government’s second emissions reduction plan (for 2026–2030) on 12 December 2023.
