Open letter demands climate action from NZ govt

An open letter signed by the likes of Sanford, the Warehouse, Z Energy, and Ernst & Young will be delivered to Parliament at midday today.

The letter has 60 signatories, reflecting a wide cross-section of New Zealand interests, including finance, transport, retail, fishing, tourism, hospitality, wine, conservation, science, beauty, medicine, health and religion.

The letter said businesses and people were already taking action to move to a low-carbon economy and the government needed to follow suit.
