Welcome to Auckland Forever - climate action with Auckland Council. A thriving future is possible for Auckland. And it starts now. With all of us, together.

By the year

2030

WE NEED TO 

HALVE 

OUR EMISSIONS

and by

2050

WE NEED TO REACH

NET ZERO 

EMISSIONS.

The current systems don't allow us to live a sustainable lifestyle. 

Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland's Climate Plan was created in partnership with mana whenua and adopted unanimously by Auckland Council to significantly curb Auckland's carbon emissions and adapt to the impacts of climate change.

The changes already underway will make it easier to reduce emissions, protect the things we love about Auckland, and to build the lives we want for our whānau. But, there's a lot more we need to do. 

Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan acknowledges mana whenua as the first peoples of Tāmaki Makaurau and an intimate part of the ecological and cultural fabric of the region.

What drives Auckland's emissions?

TE ĀHUA E URUTAU AI MĀTOU

HOW WE RESPOND

Aucklanders want the opportunity to live in a clean environment. When we work together we can have a future where all of us thrive.

We want more options besides cars to move easily around our region. We want a city that is affordable and equitable for everyone, where the mauri (life essence) of Tāmaki Makaurau is restored.

Auckland Council has already begun building a strong foundation for a healthy climate.

Auckland Council are working on 500+ projects to deliver on climate action right now
