Auckland Council reports that “Te-Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan” is our region’s blueprint for halving our emissions by 2030 reaching net zero emissions by 2050 and preparing for the impacts of climate change. The digital plan launched online on 8 December, with Mayor Phil Goff saying climate change remains a critical issue for Auckland. “The Plan calls for a range of actions from central government, the private sector, NGOs, community groups and individuals, all of which have a role to play in reaching our emissions reductions goals—this is not something the council can achieve on its own,” he says.
