Harvey welcomes government’s carbon pricing
Waitakere Mayor Bob Harvey today welcomed the government’s carbon pricing announcement.
“As an eco city, New Zealand’s first, Waitakere continually looks for long term sustainable options to ensure our environment is protected and carbon pricing is an excellent initiative in this regard.
“Carbon pricing means New Zealanders will be more aware of their environmental choices and can really take ownership of those choices.
“It will also encourage New Zealanders to really think about how they can cut their petrol bills and their energy bills in general. It’s just so important we do that because if we don’t this planet will be in a very serious way if it’s not already.
“I commend the government for this forward thinking and environmentally friendly initiative.”
