Bioenergy Association supports local Govt call for action on climate change


The Bioenergy Association is pleased to see Local Government Leaders' Climate Change Declaration where 37 mayors and chairs of NZ called for an urgent need for responsive leadership and a holistic approach to climate change.

Brian Cox, Executive Officer said that “Bioenergy Association is working closely with some local councils on bioenergy solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and sees great opportunity for working with others.
