Climate Change Minister eyes capital and funding opportunities in climate change

Posted: 13 Jun 2024

Climate change poses risks but New Zealand’s Minister for Climate Change says it also offers capital and funding opportunities for the financial services sector.

In particular, he sees big scope when it comes to the two E’s: energy and emissions.


Boosting the country’s clean energy, which is both abundant and affordable according to Watts, is a big focus for the Government.


So is carbon pricing, which Watts described as the “most effective mechanism” for reducing emissions while speaking at a Financial Services Council event on Wednesday.
