From the Executive summary
Tātaki Auckland Unlimited is on a pathway towards sustainability. Our approach to sustainability recognises that for our economy to flourish, we need a thriving and accessible environment that supports our community’s social, cultural, and economic activities.
While we still have a long way to go, we are making changes across the organisation that set us in the right direction.
Major challenges such as climate change and the pandemic create significant changes on global, national, and local levels – to our environment, economy and communities. These shared challenges require all New Zealanders and all Aucklanders to plan and act collectively, responding with a system-wide approach to ensure the environmental, economic, cultural and social costs and benefits are equitably distributed.
Externally, Tātaki Auckland Unlimited is committed to delivering economic and cultural activities that support our environment, economy and communities to thrive. This includes investment in a broad scope of sustainable activities, improving Māori outcomes, building social cohesion and inclusivity through our events, facilities and services, and accelerating Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland’s climate response.
Tātaki Auckland Unlimited’s internal sustainability response includes an emissions reduction target of 50 per cent by 2030, waste minimisation activities, cultural capacity building, a focus on kaimahi wellbeing and other initiatives to ensure we are reducing our impact on the environment – and having a positive social impact on our kaimahi community.
