We can reduce our emissions by making clean and clever energy choices. Understanding New Zealand's energy profile is a great place to start. 

Energy in New Zealand

About 40% of New Zealand's total greenhouse gas emissions come from our energy use.

The choices we make about how we use energy in our everyday lives and businesses have an impact. Our opportunity is to build out a strong and stable energy system by prioritising energy efficiency, energy conservation and the use of renewable energy sources.

Live more with less energy

Through our Gen Less platform, we encourage New Zealanders to expect and demand goods and services with a lighter carbon footprint, and to take action to reduce their own energy-related emissions.
