This research builds on national and international literature to provide insight into the 2018 baseline of green and circular employment, and the potential shift to green and circular jobs in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland.

Market Economics uses a combination of employment profiling methods developed and used internationally, using green and circular lenses. A model is then used to produce sector-based forecasts of how the Auckland economy will potentially evolve under the proposed emissions reduction pathways in Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan and the Climate Change Commission’s Ināia tonu nei: a low emissions future for Aotearoa. Green and circular jobs have been measured independently with different methodologies.

This research builds on the first phase of work modelling the economic implications of the proposed pathways in Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri and Ināia tonu nei.
