What our consultation is about

This consultation is on our first package of advice to government to help Aotearoa transition to a climate-resilient and low emissions future. The best way to provide your submission to us is to complete the survey on this website.

What our package of advice to government covers:

  • 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.

Written submissions

The survey on this website is the main way for providing your submission and is our preferred way of receiving it. There is also an option at the beginning of the survey to upload a copy of your submission if you would prefer a different format.
