Christchurch City Council has taken a leadership role on climate change for many years.

Changes to our Community Outcomes and Strategic Priorities

The Council approved a new 2020 strategic framework on 19 December 2019 and this is currently part of the consultation document on the annual plan.

Information on our revised Community Outcomes and Strategic Priorities is currently being developed.

What this means

The Council has taken a leadership role on climate change for many years and now wants to build on this leadership to further reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the city.

How we will get there

Add our voice to international collective action and set targets for reducing GHG emissions.

Roll out the battery electric vehicle outreach programme.

Engage with the business community to encourage action to reduce GHG emissions.

Raise awareness with the public of individual and household actions that make a difference to reducing GHG emissions.

Set a clear policy pathway to a GHG emission future.

Embed climate change in Council decision-making procedures.

Pilot innovative solutions to reduce GHG emissions from Council operations and encourage the uptake of successful solutions by other organisations in the city.
