This advice has been requested under section 5k of the Climate Change Response Act 2002. Section 5k allows the Minister of Climate Change to request specific reports related to emissions reductions and climate change adaptation from the Commission.
As anticipated by the appointment criteria, the Climate Change Commissioners come from varying fields such as adaptation, agriculture, economics, te ao Māori and the Māori-Crown relationship. While a number of board members continue to hold roles within these fields, our advice is independent and evidence-based. The Commission operates under its Interests Policy, which is derived from the Crown Entities Act 2004. You can read more about our board members on the Climate Change Commission website. The Commission regularly updates and publishes on its website a register of relevant board interests.
