What Annual Report 2019/2020 covers

This annual report covers the performance of Auckland Council Group for the period 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020 and reports against the long-term plan (amended 10-year budget 2018-2028) and the Annual Plan 2019/2020.

Auckland Council Group includes the council organisation, subsidiaries (including council-controlled organisations (CCOs) and Ports of Auckland), associates and joint ventures.

The report tells the story of what we did across the group over the past year to contribute to Auckland's outcomes. It includes our service performance, financial results, climate change risk, and describes our achievements and challenges.

The report fulfills our obligations under the Local Government Act 2002 to promote accountability to the community for the decisions made throughout the year, and to report performance and activities against those intended.

This is the first year that the group has prepared climate change risk disclosures. These disclosures have been prepared using the Task Force for Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) framework, and demonstrates the group's commitment to tackling climate change.
