The Government and Climate Change Commission are being sued for errors in Aotearoa’s recommended climate action.
Lawyers for Climate Action (LCANZI) are arguing that New Zealand’s climate targets are not sufficient to keep global heating to 1.5 degrees. The case begins in the High Court on the 28th February in Wellington. We can use this court case to send a powerful message about why keeping to 1.5 degrees is so important, and what’s at stake.
This case could be decisive in stepping up the government’s response.
While the case is made in court we will make the case to the government for faster and fairer climate action to protect what we love.
You can make sure the case is made loud and clear.
While this case makes its way through the courts, you can make the case to the government that they have to do more, right now, to keep 1.5 degrees in reach. Right now, the government is deciding what to fund in its 2022 Budget and what policies to include in the Emissions Reduction Plan. We can use this case to send a powerful message about why keeping to 1.5 degrees is so important, and what’s at stake.
Take action by writing to the Ministers shaping the government’s climate change response:
We need the government to include these policies in the Emissions Reduction Plan and Budget 2022:
