Why we need climate action now
We are facing a climate emergency and all have a role to play. We need to strengthen the resilience of our communities, people, and places to ensure that we care for ourselves, our communities, and Papatūānuku.
Tāmaki Makaurau has ambitious climate goals to mitigate the effects of climate change, and we are responsible as Aucklanders to help achieve these.
- By 2030 we will halve our emissions
- By 2050 we will reach net zero emissions
- By 2040 we will be a zero-waste city
What is the Sustainable Places Approach?
The Sustainable Places Approach is a holistic framework to support you to take sustainable action and grow community connection and resilience.
This approach has been created in collaboration with Community-Led Partners to provide tools and support to take climate action and build resilient communities.
our communities' needs are different across Tāmaki Makaurau, using this approach will help guide action for the priorities of your community and meet you where you're at on the sustainability journey. Together we can become climate champions.
The Sustainable Places Approach breaks sustainability down into five pou to encourage us to think about the health of our whānau and the whenua and how these are linked.
