Right now, the Climate Change Commission is taking submissions from the public. This is our chance to demand an ambitious action plan that puts an emphasis on reducing pollution from animal agriculture and promotes a climate-healthy Aotearoa.
The Climate Change Commission was established to help Aotearoa address the global climate emergency and transition to a climate-resilient and low-emissions future. The Commission has released a draft report identifying what needs to change so that Aotearoa can improve our greenhouse gas emissions profile and do our part in combating the global climate emergency.
Despite acknowledging that animal agriculture is responsible for most of the greenhouse gasses emitted in Aotearoa, the Climate Change Commission’s draft report lacks clear and strong recommendations that will allow Aotearoa to cut pollution from our most environmentally damaging industry.
The climate emergency is the greatest threat to human health this century. We need a plan that’s ambitious and bold – one that makes it clear how Aotearoa can effectively reduce climate pollution.
