Auckland has 10 years to make major changes before climate change takes hold with catastrophic consequences.
As no single group can deliver the change needed alone, we have collaborated with stakeholders across Auckland to develop this framework to reduce emissions that cause climate change, like those from transportation and energy generation, and reduce climate impacts like flooding and sea level rise.
The purpose of the framework is to:

- Reduce emissions that cause climate change
To achieve this we need to:
- Keep temperature rise within 1.5 degrees Celsius and get Auckland to net zero emissions by 2050.
We’ve come up with 11 changes – called key moves – to achieve those goals.
We can only plan on what we know now. As we learn more about climate change and its effects, as we gather new knowledge and technology, we’ll refine the framework.
We need every Aucklander – from residents to businesses – to be involved in reducing the negative impacts of climate change. This is how we start that process. ...
