Climate Change

Te Kaunihera o Ahuriri recognises the significant implications that climate change will have for Napier and the need for mitigation and adaptation actions within Council and the wider community.

Climate change is the biggest challenge we will face as a society and requires significant change to the way we live, both to reduce the impacts, and adapt to a changing climate. Inaction has dominated in the climate change space but it is never too late to start.

Napier City Council recognises that we need to take urgent action to ensure that our city is ready for the future climate change will bring. We are committed to being leaders for our community in reducing our greenhouse gas emissions and creating a climate resilient Napier. This position statement is our commitment to these actions and in particular these objectives:

  1. Napier City Council will lead Napier into a resilient future where we work with key stakeholders to take action and adapt to the impacts of climate change.
  2. Napier City Council will create a climate change strategy to ensure that Napier is able to focus on the key challenges from climate change that will affect our city and enable the community to prioritise its efforts in these areas.
  3. Napier City Council will collaborate with the community to ensure just and equitable solutions.
  4. Napier City Council will work with our Māori partners to ensure Te Tiriti o Waitangi obligations are met.
  5. Napier City Council will commit to an emissions reduction target in its next Long Term Plan and will support the community to reduce emissions across the city.

We look forward to working with the community to find solutions that work for our people. We encourage you to reach out to our climate change specialist by emailing heatherb@napier.govt.nz if you would like to discuss climate change for Napier.
