New Zealand's 2020 Emissions Target

Posted 13 years, 7 months ago    0 comments

Have your say!

 International negotiations to address climate change are reaching a critical point, leading up to a major United Nations conference in Copenhagen late this year. The New Zealand Government is working actively to secure an effective global agreement.

 As part of these efforts, we intend to publicly state New Zealand’s 2020 emissions target policy in August. We wish to hear your views so they can be taken into account when setting New Zealand's 2020 emissions target policy. To assist in that process, the Minister for Climate Change Issues the Hon Dr Nick Smith is holding a series of public meetings around the country this month.

 You can have your say on New Zealand’s 2020 emissions target policy by:

· attending one of the meetings being held around the country - Hamilton, Waikato Room, Sky City Hamilton, Monday 13th July, 7.30 - 9pm

· submitting questions for the Minister for Climate Change Issues’ online video conference to be held from 7.30pm on Monday 20 July at www.r2.co.nz/20090720. Questions can be submitted in advance at 2020target@mfe.govt.nz

· emailing or writing to the Minister with your views at nick.smith@ministers.govt.nz or Hon Dr Nick Smith, Minister for Climate Change Issues, PO Box 10362, WELLINGTON 6143.

We are producing an information brochure to help you understand the challenges associated with setting a 2020 emissions target. A link to the brochure will be emailed to you in the next few days.
