Sustainable Business Council

Business, people and nature thriving together

National Adaptation Plan

The Climate Leaders Coalition (CLC) is proud to partner with the Sustainable Business Council (SBC) to respond to the Government’s draft National Adaptation Plan and Managed Retreat proposals.

The Sustainable Business Council exists to mobilise New Zealand’s most ambitious businesses to build a thriving and sustainable future for all.

SBC is a membership organisation that connects businesses, partners, and sectors to create impact that no single business could achieve alone. We work with executives and sustainability professionals to maximise their positive impact for shareholders, communities and the environment. We hold our members to account by asking them to fulfil member commitments. We deliver impact by championing our members to be at the leading-edge of sustainability and in doing so inspire other businesses to take action.
