Nine To Noon for Thursday 3 December 2020
09:05 Why are hate crimes not accurately recorded?
Justice reform advocates call for change after newly published police data shows only 4 out of 10 hate crimes are being dealt with correctly. The police only started recording hate crimes after last year's terror attacks in Christchurch despite years of requests. But nearly half of those crimes are being wrongly downgraded from a criminal offence, to either "incidents" in which no crime was committed, or to lower level crimes. Philippa Tolley speaks with JustSpeak Co-chair Julia Whaipooti. Also Police Association President Chris Cahill.
09:20 Technology helping Kiwi businesses and consumers track their carbon footprint
As the government declares a climate emergency and the Prime Minister promises to follow it up with action, Philippa talks to two companies that aren't waiting around. The Toitū carbon assess platform helps SMEs to calculate their emissions by tracking the money spent on electricity, fuel, flights and waste. Another tool, Cogo app, is aimed at individual consumers and uses their banking data to track their footprint in real time and deliver "ethical nudges" about how to lower it. Philippa is joined by Steve Dixon, Toitū Envirocare's general manager of strategy and partnerships and Ben Gleisner, founder and CEO of Cogo.

UK correspondent Matthew Parris joins Philippa to talk about the approval of the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine that could be rolled out next week - but who gets it first?

And is a scotch egg really a meal?
10:05 Shilo Kino, The Pōrangi Boy
Shilo Kino has written a novel for young adults, which, she hopes, their parents will read too. Journalist with TVNZ current affairs show Marae, Shilo's first book is The Pōrangi Boy, about Northland twelve year old Niko who tries to stop a prison being built on land that is tapu. Shilo Kino tells Philippa Tolley she wishes this book had been around when she was a child, and talks about her commitment to learning Te Reo.
