NZ supports pledge to triple renewable energy by 2030

From Midday Report, 12:40 pm on 7 December 2023

New Zealand has been added to the official list of countries supporting a pledge to triple renewable energy and double energy efficiency by 2030.

It was one of only a few OECD countries missing from the initial list of 118 signatories, which was launched at the COP28 climate summit over the weekend.

It also comes as Parliament's environment watchdog has told off the ACT Party deputy leader Brooke van Velden for sharing misinformation about findings on the oil and gas ban.
