In early-to-mid September we expect to see a consultation document come out from Ministry for the Environment covering some of the critical parts of getting Aotearoa to zero waste. These include:
- High level waste strategy
- Changes to the 2008 Waste Minimisation Act
- Emissions reduction plan for ‘waste’
The ZWN research team are working on background information to support our submissions on these topics. We will also prepare a submission guide for members and supporters to use when making your own/organisational submission(s). We will host Network webinars to discuss and gather ideas from members.
Our current work weaves together the submissions and thinking we have done through the year on vocational training, to the Climate Commission and Infrastructure Commission, on plastics, mandatory product stewardship and other key areas.
It is a big opportunity to get involved. We will plan to discuss key actions at the hui.
