Climate First

The pathway to a post-carbon world

Climate First Policies

All Climate First policies reflect  the need to rapidly reduce greenhouse gas emissions in New Zealand. Thus our policies are derived from the RERP (the Required Emission Reduction Pathway) of reducing 2.75 Mtns year on year until 2038, shared among the 5 economic sectors of Agriculture, Energy, Transport, Industrial Processes and Waste,  in proportion to their current emissions. For example Agriculture with 48% of emissions must make 48% of the reductions..
