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.

WE NEED TO
WE NEED TO REACH
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.

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.
NGĀ WHĀINGA MĀTĀMUA
Explore the 8 priorities for Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan
Providing more transport choices beyond personal vehicles.
Restoring and replenishing the mauri (life essence) of Tāmaki Makaurau.
Offering access to local, fresh, healthy food for all.
Planning lower carbon urban spaces, infrastructure and buildings.
Preparing our people for our changing climate and coastline in an equitable way.
Ensuring Māori communities are resilient, self-sustaining and prosperous.
Developing a regenerative economy underpinned by kaitiakitanga.
Creating a clean energy system that supports low-carbon lifestyles.
Auckland Council and our CCOs have many community organisations, private-sector partners, and iwi-led initiatives that are helping reduce emissions. Together, we can change the way we live, work and play and determine the shape of generations to come.
Auckland Council adopts climate-focused Annual Budget
Auckland Council has formally adopted the Annual Budget 2022/23, locking in a bold billion-dollar package to combat the climate crisis.
Cutting Auckland Council’s own emissions
They say change starts from within, and that’s the approach Auckland Council is applying to cutting its corporate carbon emissions.
The pathway to lower transport emissions in Auckland
An Auckland where kids can walk or ride safely to school, where public transport is efficient and equitable across the entire region, where we all have more choice in how we travel, and where we are collectively less vulnerable to global risks; that’s the vision outlined in the proposed Transport Emissions Reduction Pathway.
