Council, 21 June 2021.
How this strategy was developed
This Strategy was developed using feedback from Ngāi Tahu and the Papatipu Rūnanga, public surveys, Councillors, and staff, as well as an external Technical Advisory Group with representation from local academics, scientists, unions, youth, health, community, and climate and sustainability advocates.
In developing the draft strategy, we also looked to both local and international examples of strategies including Ngāi Tahu’s strategy, He Rautake Mō Te Huringa O Te Āhuarangi, Auckland’s Climate Action Framework and Wellington’s blueprint for a Zero Carbon Capital.
We will continue to work with the community, Ngāi Tahu and the Papatipu Rūnanga, central government, stakeholders, businesses, organisations across Christchurch and Banks Peninsula, to further develop and implement the Climate Action Programmes in the strategy.
How this strategy works
We have set four Climate Goals for Christchurch, supported by ten Climate Action Programmes that outline what we need to do to achieve these goals.
Council can’t do this alone - everyone has a part to play in taking climate action.
To achieve our climate goals, we need the people and organisations of Christchurch and Banks Peninsula to work together to deliver the actions under our Climate Action Programmes.
