Legal alert - Environmental Reporting Bill - Select Committee report

2 April 2015

The Environmental Reporting Bill was reported back to the House by the Local Government and Environment Select Committee on 30 March 2015.

 

While the Bill is still progressing through the House, if passed, it would require regular reporting on New Zealand's environment.  The Secretary for the Environment and Government Statistician would report on one of five domains (air, freshwater, land, marine, atmosphere and climate) every six months.
