Submission to the Prime Minister on the Required Reduction of New Zealand’s CO2 Emissions

We urge the New Zealand Government to set an ambitious target for reduction of our gross greenhouse gas emissions by 2020, and beyond, in advance of the UN Climate Change Conference to be held in Paris in late 2015.

In our view this should take the form of a commitment to a minimum 10% reduction in our 2012 gross emissions total by 2020 and 30% by 2030 (equivalent to 2% a year from 2016).
