We’re taking a leading role, working with government, mana whenua and our communities, to protect our region right now and for generations to follow.
We declared a climate emergency in 2019 and set a big, bold target to be carbon neutral by 2030. We’re serious about this. We partner with all sorts of groups, working together to reduce emissions and prepare for the unavoidable effects of climate change. We’re taking action now and planning for big changes ahead, to help us reach our carbon neutral goal.
As an organisation we have declared a climate emergency and formally established a target to become "carbon neutral" by 2030.
The climate emergency declaration encompasses everything we are doing to combat climate change including emissions from the Wellington region as a whole and adapting to the effects of climate change.
We are already seeing the impacts of climate change on our region and these will continue to become more apparent over time.
