Climate resilience in Whangārei District

Our changing climate is affecting the way we live, work, and travel. 

In 2019, our Council joined 17 regional and local councils from across New Zealand in declaring a climate emergency. This declaration is part of the internationally binding Paris Agreement to limit the global average temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. 

We are committed to working together with our communities to build climate resilience and look for new opportunities as we transition to a thriving, low-emission, innovative and more sustainable city.
