NZ not on the map!

NZ not on the map!

News from CEO – Mike Hopkins

It was good to see some results of the behind the scenes work we do coming to the fore this week. The media was showing interest in our views again with a few comments and quotes appearing in Energy News and, perhaps more importantly, it was good to see that we’re being heard in the corridors of power.
I’ve been working through the MBIE consultation on Accelerating Renewables and Energy Efficiency in preparing our submission and noted discussion items about mandating energy management systems, such as ISO50001, for larger organisations – something that we raised to the Productivity Commission in its work – and direct mention of the capability building we’re already pursuing to reduce skills barriers. There’s a huge amount of work to do on that, of course, and many (mostly resource) obstacles to overcome but we’ll be waving the flag for efficiency whenever we get the chance.
Good news this week from the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit with it publishing a report indicating 49% of the world’s GDP (by nation, region or city) is now covered by actual or intended net zero targets. The really positive news to this is that only nine months ago, the figure was only 16%, telling us that policymakers are finally starting to take action on emissions on a global scale.
We’re also interested in Amazon’s announcement this week of a US$10bn fund to explore new ways and amplify known ways to address climate change. The precise criteria for support aren’t published yet but we’ll be keeping a close eye on developments.
Finally, this week good news and bad news. The good news is that two NZ cities made the just published CDP “A” List of for climate change action. Congratulations to Auckland and Wellington. The bad news is that it comes alongside another example of NZ disappearing off the world map. So, an A to Auckland and Wellington councils and a “must try harder” to CDP.
