Pathways To Net Zero By 2050

As part of the Government’s commitment to taking action on climate change, the Minister of Transport released Hīkina te Kohupara – Kia mauri ora ai te iwi – Transport Emissions: Pathways to Net Zero by 2050.

The Ministry of Transport’s document sets out potential pathways to design out emissions across our transport system and move Aotearoa towards a net zero carbon transport system by 2050.

The Ministry of Transport will conduct targeted engagement, seeking views from transport sector stakeholders, local government, iwi, and community groups. Feedback will inform advice to the Government on the first whole of government Emissions Reduction Plan to be released in December 2021, and the future transport emissions strategy.

All members of the public will be given the opportunity to provide feedback on Government initiatives to reduce transport emissions when the Government releases a draft Emissions Reduction Plan (ERP) for consultation in the 2nd half of 2021.

Consultation is open for six weeks until 25 June.
