On 1 June 2018 we updated our Work Programme with the Minister for Climate Change Hon James Shaw and further clarified our Terms of Reference.
Hon James Shaw
Minister for Climate Change Issues
1 June 2018
I would like to update you on how the Interim Climate Change Committee is shaping its work programme.
Our focus is on helping to get New Zealand started on ‘bending the curve’ of its greenhouse gas emissions downward by setting out how to implement real and sustained change in the agriculture and energy sectors. While we will not recommend what New Zealand’s 2050 emissions target(s) should be, we will focus on changes that will assist in meeting future targets.
We have considered how broadly we need to look across the economy to address these two challenges. This is summarised as follows.
We welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss our work programme in more detail.
Chair, Interim Climate Change Committee
