Carbon emissions

This year’s review of the Zero Carbon Capital Plan focuses on continuing Wellington’s climate leadership by aligning our Carbon reduction targets with our ambitions, better understanding and supporting individual carbon reduction decisions, and transforming our carbon profile as the city grows. Initiatives in the plan include exploring dynamic shuttles to move people around where there is not adequate public transport. The plan will be consulted on separately in the next few months and builds on our success through previous plans in releasing our gamified carbon calculator built with Auckland Council, filling the city with shared cars and bikes, and reaching two percent of the city with our home energy saver audit service. Any new initiatives will be considered through the next annual plan.

We continue to actively pursue opportunities to reduce carbon emissions across the city through direct investment in sustainable transport —­­ such as building cycleways, supporting electric vehicle charging, and increasing car sharing opportunities. Through our District Plan, we are also looking at minimum parking requirements and how we can support the city to grow in a compact and walkable way.

We will be asking for feedback on the Zero Carbon Capital Plan from 15 April - 10 May 2019. To have your say visit Wellington City Council's website.

In addition, if you are interested in seeing what sea level rise might look like in Wellington City we encourage you to view the Wellington Sea Level Tool.
