Our interests policy and register
Interests declared by our Commissioners are recorded in an Interests Register and managed using the rules set out in our Interests Policy.
Managing Commissioner interests
Our role is to provide independent, evidence-based advice to the Government of the day. Because of this, our Commissioners are required to have sufficient skills, experience and knowledge to make a valuable contribution to the Commission’s work. As part of their role, Commissioners have to use their experience and judgement to provide advice on how Aotearoa can meet its climate goals.
Because of their skills, experience and knowledge it is not unusual for Commissioners to have interests that relate to the Commission’s work. To manage these, the Commission has an interests policy and maintains a live register of interests.
All interests declared by board members are managed using the policy.
