Vision

The Green Party envisions an Aotearoa New Zealand in which Government at all  levels, iwi, communities, industry, and research institutions are aligned and  collaborate in taking urgent, informed and sustained action to decrease and manage  the adverse effects of global climate change. Collectively we understand that human induced climate change represents one of the greatest threats to our living world and - through its impact on the life-supporting capacity of our natural environment,  specifically air, water, soil, and ecosystems - future human generations. We  recognise that most responses to climate change also generate positive outcomes  for environmental well-being and human communities. We act purposefully and  responsibly, together and individually, to: 

• Rapidly reduce our collective greenhouse gas emissions and increase carbon  sequestration, consistent with the urgency of the situation • Adapt to the likely adverse social, cultural and environmental effects of climate change, using responsible decision-making to support desirable outcomes. • Respond to climate change in a way that respects all living organisms,  including all people, and provides for a just, equitable and resilient society. • Lead the international response to climate change by example. Successful climate change mitigation and adaptation will be achieved by the  combined effect of multiple Green Party policies working in conjunction with this one.
