Climate change is on the agenda

07 Nov 2019


We have a Government which is committed to New Zealand becoming a world leader in climate change action, and New Zealand is on the path to a ‘low emission, climate resilient future’.

At this stage, whether you believe in human influence on climate change or not has become irrelevant. NZ Inc. signed up to the Paris Agreement, and this is starting to trickle down through the supply chain.

It also means civil contractors will be asked what we are doing as an industry to reduce carbon emissions. It is expected that more government departments will request suppliers firstly understand what their carbon footprint of greenhouse gas emissions is, and secondly have a plan to reduce them.

This means central and local government contractors and suppliers will increasingly be asked to provide information on how they are reducing their carbon footprint as part of the tender process, and throughout projects.

The Zero Carbon Bill

The new Climate Change Response (Zero Carbon) Amendment Bill sets the terms of how New Zealand’s commitments under the Paris Agreement will affect businesses. The Environment Select Committee is currently considering the Bill, which is set to come into force this year.
