Climate change is the biggest challenge of our time. It is already affecting our weather, health and wellbeing, natural environment, taonga species, mahinga kai, food production, biosecurity, infrastructure, and the economy.

We’re responding to climate change in Ōtautahi Christchurch by working towards targets for reducing emissions, and by helping our communities prepare for and adapt to our changing climate.

Our emission target is half by 2030, and carbon zero by 2045.

Our commitment to providing strong climate action leadership in partnership with our communities is outlined in our strategy Kia tūroa te Ao – Ōtautahi Christchurch Climate Resilience Strategy 2021 [PDF, 1.8 MB].

Together, we can lower emissions and make changes for Christchurch, for everyone, for good.
