Tō tātou anamata āhuarangi

Climate change is not some far-away threat — it’s happening now, and its effects are being felt around Aotearoa and the world.

Aotearoa New Zealand’s average temperatures are warming, the sea level is rising, and extreme weather events are becoming more frequent. 

Our climate future

The ways we eat, travel, and consume all produce greenhouse gases. These emissions can be trapped in the atmosphere for decades or even centuries and fuel global warming.

The actions we take individually and collectively will either help or hinder our emission reductions efforts and shape the lives of future generations. Together, we can make a better climate future.
