INTERNET MANA CAN DO BETTER We could consider binding outcomes and will require specific action by central & local government & industry & initiatives leading to individual change. Top policies: 100% renewable electricity by 2025, climate-friendly transport investment, major local economic development, replace of ETS with carbon tax reinvested in climate friendly tech. This response is heading in the right direction but is not as strong as it could be.
LABOUR CAN DO BETTER Through legislation Labour will establish an independent climate commission, set an ambitious target, and then transparently lay out a sector by sector plan showing how we intend to achieve that target. This response is heading in the right direction but is not as strong as it could be.
MAORI CAN DO BETTER We will look at this and see how it can be addressed without impacting upon iwi and hapu who have received carbon credits as part of Treaty Settlements. This response is heading in the right direction but is not as strong as it could be.
NATIONAL ? No answer provided.
NZ FIRST CAN DO BETTER New Zealand First wishes to support the establishment of a form planning process to develop strategies, plans, research programmes and targets to achieve fossil carbon reduction relevant to New Zealand similar to how the UK already does under the 2008 UK Climate Change Act. This response is heading in the right direction but is not as strong as it could be.
UNITED FUTURE CAN'T We don’t believe such inflexible methods are the best approach for tackling climate change. We want to focus on reducing pollution, increasing energy efficiency in homes, transport and industry and producing more renewable energy. Read policy
