Vote for the Environment Campaign : Elections 2002
Organised every election year by a coalition comprising Environment and Conservation Organisations of New Zealand (ECO), Greenpeace NZ, Royal Forest and Bird Protection Society and Federated Mountain Clubs.

The Vote for the Environment coalition has prepared a Charter that outlines their preferred policy portfolio on environmental issues. This Charter is used to prepare a Questionaire, both of which are sent to political parties to gauge their response to around 50 questions. These responses are then made public before the election so that voters can see where each party stands on a number of environmental issues.
