Climate Change Mitigation Options for New Zealand

a report by The Royal Society of New Zealand, April 2016

This report Transition to a low-carbon economy for New Zealand takes an in-depth look into climate change mitigation options for New Zealand.  It finds that many mitigation options are already well-understood and achievable.  Achieving a low-carbon economy for New Zealand involves taking low-risk climate mitigation actions now and planning for more ambitious greenhouse gas emissions in the future.

The report identifies opportunities in the sectors of:

  • heat supply
  • electricity supply
  • transport
  • buildings
  • industry
  • agriculture
  • forest and other land-use

It also considers the interactions between technology, policy and behaviour and the factors that either limit or provide opportunities for change, and gaps in our knowledge.
