Green Jobs

We have a practical economic plan that creates decent jobs, adds resilience to our economy, and protects our natural environment. It is a plan for clean green prosperity for all New Zealanders.

Our plan will create 100,000 new jobs through direct government investment in housing, by ensuring our state-owned energy companies capture the massive export opportunities in the renewable energy sector, and, most importantly, by shifting the drivers for green jobs in the private sector.

Our Green Jobs Initiative complements plans we've already announced to address child poverty in New Zealand and clean up our rivers and lakes.

Jobs, rivers, and kids: It's a pretty compelling vision for a richer New Zealand.
