Climate Change Leadership

In July 2019, Trust Tairāwhiti, partnering with Eastland Group, signed up to the Climate Leaders Coalition.

The Trust has committed to measuring our greenhouse gas emissions, setting a reduction target, and publicly reporting progress.

The Trust will progress a range of climate focussed initiatives. We will develop a sustainable business programme of events and wrap-around support in partnership with the Sustainable Business Network. We will also work with regional leaders on sustainable procurement procedures and a community-led regional emissions reduction plan.

Success looks like

  • Trust emissions are reduced by 21 percent by 2025.
  • Tairāwhiti businesses and communities are supported to reduce emissions and build climate resilience.
  • The region moves to low emissions and a circular economy is supported.
