About this draft advice
The second emissions budget (for 2026-2030) has been set, but the Government needs a plan to deliver on it. He Pou a Rangi Climate Change Commission’s role is to provide independent, evidence-based advice on the direction of policy, taking a systems-wide view. We last provided advice like this in our 2021 report Ināia tonu nei.
This plan will cover the second emissions budget period, from 2026-2030. This report is a draft of that advice prepared for public consultation. Our final advice will reflect the feedback we receive through the engagement process and will be delivered to the Government at the end of 2023.
