Establishing the New Zealand Climate Commission and reforming the Emissions Trading Scheme


Budget 2019 sets the foundations for our plans to tackle the climate crisis.

Today’s Budget 2019 ensures progress on our climate change goals of transitioning our economy towards a low carbon future.

This includes $43.1 million for the Climate Change Commission to provide the advice, guidance and monitoring New Zealand needs to reduce our emissions.

The transition to lowering our emissions must be effective, efficient and just to keep the temperature rise to less than 1.5 degrees and bring people along to drive further action.
