From Morning Report, 8:48 am on 7 November 2023

Since 2018, businesses in the Climate Leaders Coalition have collectively reduced emissions by 3.6 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent - or the average annual emissions of 270,000 New Zealanders.

That is according to the group's fifth annual snapshot report - released Tuesday morning.

The Coalition includes some of our biggest emitters - like Air New Zealand and Fonterra.

The report says that 85-percent of the 88 signatories have developed ambitious targets to reduce emissions associated with their direct operations and energy use, but the action being taken to manage wider, scope three emissions is less clear.

The Coalition's convener and Spark CEO Jolie Hodson spoke to Corin Dann.
