Your exclusive ministerial update
Join Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand Co-Leader, Hon James Shaw in a live conversation with Property Council Chief Executive Leonie Freeman as we get an overview of the Government’s plans to tackle climate change and how the built environment will need to adapt to help reduce our carbon emissions.
We will be asking the Minister about the Carbon Zero Act and the revisions to the Emissions Trading Scheme. We will discuss recent changes to the Resource Management Act and gain an overview of what incentives the Government is looking at to motivate building owners to think innovatively about the construction, design, and operation of buildings.
Questions? Please submit your questions prior to the event here and we will do our best to fit in as many as possible.
Hon James Shaw
Green Party Co-Leader
New Zealand can lead the world in transitioning to a high-value, clean-tech, post-carbon economy that works for everyone. It’s one of the many reasons James joined the Green Party in 1990, and why he’s extremely excited about being a Minister in the Labour-led Government. This Government will bring the large-scale, transformational change that is needed to build a truly sustainable economy, a diverse inclusive society, and to restore and replenish our natural world.
Prior to becoming an MP, James had a successful career in management consulting, primarily in London, where he lived from 1998 to 2010. James worked with large, multinational companies across Europe and around the world, helping them develop more sustainable business practices.
While studying in the UK for a Master’s degree in sustainable development and business leadership, James realised that the private sector alone wasn’t able to affect change at the speed and scale necessary to meet the great challenges of our time.
James’ diverse business experience and expertise, from working for multinational corporates through to local start-ups, social enterprises and community organisations, will enable him to lead the Green Party, the Government and New Zealanders towards a high-tech post-carbon economy and society.
