Climate Leaders Coalition New Statement Of Ambition

Statement from Auckland Transport Interim Chief Executive Mark Lambert:

Auckland Transport is proud to support the New Statement of Ambition being launched tonight by the Climate Leaders Coalition.

We’re delighted that AT’s work to achieve the outcomes agreed by the Climate Leaders Coalition has been recognised as ‘best practise’ and highlighted as a case study.

The case study focuses on our work with KPMG to comprehensively assess and prioritise climate change risk and opportunities, and to use insights gathered to strengthen our risk management framework.

Alongside this work we’ve also worked closely with mana whenua to develop Hikina te Wero, a plan which outlines how AT is protecting and restoring our natural environment through our transport planning and infrastructure projects.

Through partnerships with our public transport operators we have accelerated the decarbonisation of our bus and ferry fleets, with orders now in place for Auckland’s first electric ferries and for 152 additional battery electric buses which will reduce our bus fleet emissions by about 10,000 tonnes each year.

We’re also actively supporting Auckland Council in implementing Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan. This includes supporting development of the Transport Emission Reduction Pathway for Tāmaki Makaurau.

Finally, we make it easy for our people to make sustainable transport choices every day by providing AT HOP cards as staff ID cards, end of trip facilities for our people who walk, run and cycle to work, and by deliberately not providing parking for any AT staff member, including our executive leadership team.

Gordon Campbell: On How Climate Change Threatens Cricket‘s Future

Well that didn’t last long, did it? Mere days after taking on what he called the “awesome responsibility” of being Prime Minister, Christopher Luxon has started blaming everyone else and complaining that he's inherited “economic vandalism on an unprecedented scale” - which is how most of us would describe his own coalition agreements, 100-Day Plan, and backdated $3 billion handout to landlords...

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
