“As a councillor I endorsed Te Atakura – First to Zero. As your Mayor I will embrace the challenge of leading our city towards a lower carbon future. This is a journey we all need to walk together and be part of delivering. My policy includes reducing emissions through transport and compact urban form. It also raises thinking about the products we consume, about waste reduction and reuse, and the potential benefits for biodiversity and employment through taking action on reducing emissions.”
