In June 2019 we declared a climate emergency to signal our commitment to putting climate change at the front and centre of our decision making.
Auckland's climate is changing, and we need a plan that coordinates our actions to reduce emissions and increases our resilience to climate change.
We have less than a decade to make significant change or we'll risk widespread social, cultural, environmental and economic disaster.
What the framework does
Auckland's Climate Action Framework sets out a pathway towards a climate-ready Auckland and is a starting point for all Aucklanders to work together to deliver our climate action efforts.
The framework sets out a plan to:
- keep temperature rise within 1.5 degrees Celsius
- get Auckland to net zero emissions by 2050.
It lays out our key moves in achieving this goal, including using renewable energy, delivering clean, safe transport systems, and moving to a zero-carbon economy. It also sets out a range of actions for individuals, communities, organisations and businesses to help work toward these goals.
However, the framework doesn't cover everything we need to do. As new evidence emerges, we'll learn more, and new actions will appear as we track our progress.
No individual person or organisation is responsible for climate change. It will take a collaborative effort from everyone.
Have your say on Auckland's Climate Action Framework
We have prepared a draft framework, and we want to hear what you think about it.
- the actions we have set out
- who should be involved in delivering the framework.
When you can have your say
You can have your say from 17 July to 6 September 2019.
You can give feedback online or at one of our Have your say events.
What happens next
Once we've reviewed your feedback, we'll present it to the Governing Body and to the local boards.
Any actions that require further funding will be consulted on through future 10-year budgets.
