Auckland Unlimited plays a key role in the implementation of the economy section of Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri: Auckland’s Climate Plan. Importantly, many of the objectives of the plan around resilience and economic sustainability have become even more urgent because COVID-19 has exposed some of the same vulnerabilities in our economy.
As mentioned in the Auckland Unlimited Statement of Intent (SOI) 2021-2024, the projects and programmes of work with businesses aim to support Auckland’s transition to a more resilient and regenerative economy.
Auckland Unlimited’s corporate sustainability includes its contribution to Auckland Council group’s emissions reduction target of 50% by 2030, and ensure Auckland Unlimited is prepared for the impacts of climate change.
Our Climate Change and Sustainability work has two components:
- Internal work with key stakeholders across Auckland Unlimited’s assets and services to contribute to climate action and corporate sustainability.
- External work with stakeholders across the Auckland region including businesses, council, council-controlled organisations and local boards to contribute to a sustainable Auckland.
This report highlights some of the actions and activities we have undertaken across Auckland Unlimited throughout the last financial year.
