Equitable Transitions Strategy

The Government wants New Zealand to move to a low-emissions economy. This is part of their action to address climate change. The transition to a low emissions future presents opportunities as well as challenges and the Government wants this to be fair for everyone.

Background

New Zealand's emissions reduction plan sets out the direction for climate action over the next 15 years.

Part of this plan is to transition to a low emissions economy (reduce greenhouse gas emissions).

The Government wants to ensure that any changes made to reduce our emissions are fair for all New Zealanders – creating an "equitable transition".

This work is being led by the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE).

The goal is to develop an Equitable Transitions Strategy. A draft Strategy will be published in June 2023 and a final Strategy published in June 2024.
