SBC and CLC’s draft National Adaptation Plan submission, June 2022

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

This document represents the collective views of the members of SBC and CLC, a group of more than 160 businesses who contribute more than a third of New Zealand’s GDP. We have worked with our members over this short consultation period, drawing on their insights and expertise to develop 13 key recommendations for accelerating adaptation in New Zealand by outlining impactful measures that will support an effective and enduring adaptation response.

Our recommendations include a long-term enduring National Adaptation Framework to guide our response over successive NAPs, clear targets, indicators and accountability, development of a national adaptation financing strategy, and a platform for open climate data to enable efficient and effective decision making – among a range of other practical proposals.
