A Zero Carbon Act for New Zealand: revisiting 'Stepping stones to Paris and beyond'

7 Mar 2018
Description

This report contains detailed advice to Parliament on plans for a UK-style Zero Carbon Act and independent Climate Commission. It follows on from the Stepping stones to Paris and beyond report released by Mr Upton’s predecessor, Dr Jan Wright, in July last year.

The Commissioner has made nine recommendations on what he sees as some of the more critical elements in the formation of the legislation and the ensuing Climate Commission. This includes setting effective carbon budgets, establishing a credible Commission, and ensuring that words are turned into deeds. It also underlines the importance of addressing climate adaptation.
