With our research partner TRA, we’ve surveyed business decision makers on their organisations’ attitudes and actions around climate change and energy use over the last four years. We’ve taken a deep dive into the impact business sector, size, and region have on their willingness and ability to tackle climate change.

Many Kiwi organisations see hurdles, not opportunities, when it comes to climate action, despite knowing sustainability is good for business. If we’re going to meet our targets, businesses need to be on the journey, so it’s important to understand where they are now.

While business decision makers generally believe in climate change, and believe their business could make a difference, not many are taking action.
