Consultation information

What our consultation covered

Our consultation covered the draft of our first package of advice to government to help Aotearoa transition to a climate-resilient and low emissions future. 

What our draft package of advice covered:

  • the proposed first three emissions budgets and guidance on the first emissions reduction plan, advising the Government on how the emissions budgets could be met
  • whether our first Nationally Determined Contribution is compatible with  contributing to the global efforts  to limit warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels
  • advice on what potential reductions in biogenic methane might be needed in the future.


Presenting final advice to the Government 

Our final advice was presented to the Government on 31 May 2021. 

After considering all the feedback and making appropriate changes to our material, we will present our final advice to the Government in May 2021. The Government then has until 31 December 2021 to respond.
