Publication reference number: ME 847

This report is the second national-level state of New Zealand’s environment report. It takes the pulse of the physical well-being of New Zealand’s land, water, air, plants and animals and measures the impact of transport, energy, waste, and our consumption on the environment.

Introduction

It identifies trends in and selected pressures on our natural resources. It introduces benchmark environmental indicators as well as 80 specific measures, to capture hard data which will be used to build a clear picture of trends and pressures over time.

This report is a ‘one stop shop’ of accessible, relevant environmental information which can be used as a basis for decision-making. A summary of Environment New Zealand 2007 has been published.
