The Sustainable Business Council (SBC) and Climate Leaders Coalition (CLC) present this high-level submission in response to the consultation on The Government’s long-term strategic vision for Aotearoa’s national electric vehicle charging infrastructure system.
This document was created in consultation with members of SBC, a group of more than 138 businesses that contribute more than 33 percent of New Zealand’s GDP. Our members include energy companies, network businesses, transport and logistics operators; and automotive importers.
In the light passenger sector, SBC is a member of the Clean Car Sector Leadership Group. We also have our own Clean Car Accelerator group of members. In the freight area, we have established the SBC Low Carbon Freight Group comprising key stakeholders looking to decarbonise heavy freight through optimisation, fuel switching, and mode shift.
