“New Zealand is very well placed to see the increasing impact of climate change as an opportunity, not a threat. As politicians, regulators, trade officials and consumers internationally focus on increased environmental standards as a pre-requisite for market support New Zealand will have to present itself consistently as meeting or beating world expectations of us. As a New Zealander I can see the benefits both for our own living standards and for the appeal of our exports. It’s time to start walking the talk.”
