Policy Positions — Current Strategic Priorities

Zero Carbon Target

Tourism can a take a lead in addressing Aotearoa’s climate change responsibilities, by setting a zero-carbon industry goal and getting there sooner than the government’s goal of a carbon zero New Zealand by 2050 (TSC Commitment 11). The levels and timing are under consideration, along with the pathway actions to get there. Once in place, we see the target as providing a catalyst for a range of actions across the industry to sharply reduce carbon emissions.
