Climate Change Response (Zero Carbon) Amendment Bill - Submission

Business Central and Wellington Chamber of Commerce Submission

Issue date


  • Business Central supports the overall objective of the Bill for New Zealand to play its part in the international effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We welcome the Bill’s framework of defined 2050 targets and the establishment of an independent Climate Change Commission because they will contribute significantly to fulfilling New Zealand’s obligations under the Paris Agreement.
  • As an organisation, Business Central has been Carbon Zero certified since 2016. We
    take our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint seriously and actively encourage our
    members to do the same.
  • We endorse the Bill's general policy statement, mainly the overarching purpose to have "a productive, sustainable, and climate-resilient economy". It is only through strong economic growth that New Zealand will be able to afford the trade-offs and technology required to transition to a low-carbon economy.
