Our Climate Action and Investment Plan

Tauranga faces significant pressures from the wide-ranging effects of our changing climate. This includes pressures on our native flora and fauna, threats to our marine life and rising sea levels threatening coastal communities and infrastructure.

To reduce the drivers of climate change and its effects on our people and city, Tauranga City Council (TCC) is embarking on the development of Tauranga’s first Climate action and investment plan (Climate plan). This will be a proactive response plan to the identified drivers and projected impacts of climate change in the area and is in response to the recently released national Emission Reduction Plan (ERP) and the National Adaptation Plan (NAP).

Aotearoa New Zealand's first emissions reduction plan

The end product of the development process of the Climate Plan is a set of emission reduction targets and resilience goals supported by a prepared roadmap of actions in the form of an Investment Plan.

TCC consider that a climate roadmap (‘Climate Action and Investment Plan’) is crucial to unlocking these aspirations. The Climate Plan will build on the considerable amount of data and information that has been collated by TCC over the past couple of years. It will clearly set out the steps TCC and our community need to take to achieve its goal.
