Election 2011

In tough economic times, we need a prudent plan that encourages hope for the future.

A richer New Zealand means clean rivers, thriving kids and jobs that are good for the environment and our economy. A richer Aotearoa would be powered by a clean, green economy that works for everyone - a smart and compassionate economy.

We have three priorities that will help deliver a richer New Zealand

The fiscal implications of the Green Party’s priorities for 2011-2014 are revenue positive - in plain English, they pay for themselves. We estimate nearly $8 billion in extra government revenues from various sources (e.g. a temporary earthquake levy, a levy on the commercial use
of water) and we estimate our priorities will cost just over $4 billion in new government spending. These figures indicate that our policy priorities would help reduce the government debt.

The Greens are a popular, modern, successful party

Green ideas have come of age. For over a decade the Greens have been working in Parliament, across the political spectrum, to advance smart Green solutions, with lasting benefits for New Zealand.
