What do you mean by zero carbon?

We mean New Zealand achieving zero net greenhouse gas emissions. New Zealand can achieve this by:

  • Phasing out fossil fuels (coal, oil and gas) and transitioning to clean energy sources for our transport, heat and electricity.

  • Reducing other greenhouse gas emissions, particularly from agriculture, as much as we can.

  • Increasing permanent carbon sinks (such as forests) to offset the remaining greenhouse gas emissions we cannot avoid.
