Nature is intrinsic to New Zealand’s national identity. It underpins much of our success, while also being the frequent cause of hardship. Events like earthquakes and floods show just how powerful nature can be and the enduring impacts it can have on our lives. Reducing these impacts is at the heart of meeting nature’s challenge. Here’s what we’re focused on:
Reducing our carbon
We’re working to reduce our carbon emissions, while offsetting those that remain. This includes our continued investment in energy-efficient buildings and paperless customer documents.
Reducing the impact of natural hazards
We’re working to improve how New Zealand reduces and prepares for the physical, economic and social impacts of natural hazards. This includes our work to support changes in Government policy and practice.
Helping others adapt to climate change
We're working to improve how New Zealand adapts to the physical changes of our warming climate. This includes our work to help others understand the consequences of climate change.
We are proud of our contributions to meet nature's challenge
