Sustainability Matters 16th May 2019

This last week or two there has been a substantial amount of publicity and discussion about the New Zealand government’s proposed Zero Carbon Bill. There is also the almost concurrent visit to NZ of United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who while positing the proposal has much merit infers the barre has not been set sufficiently high – perhaps inferring the politicians being pragmatic to their constituencies rather than the science-led need.

For space reasons it has been decided not to canvas these issues in this edition of Sustainability Matters in which you can read about;
