He Pou a Rangi the Climate Change Commission will deliver its final advice to Government on Monday 31 May, outlining how Aotearoa can reach its climate targets.
The Minister of Climate Change James Shaw will then be responsible for releasing the advice publicly, by tabling it in Parliament within ten working days of receiving it.
The advice will be published on the Commission’s website once it has been tabled.
The Commission is not able to provide copies or release the advice until it has been tabled. Because of this, we will not be commenting on the advice or content of the public submissions received on the draft advice during this time.
Once our advice has been delivered, it’s over to the Government to develop a detailed strategy and take action on our recommendations.
We will progressively publish all supporting information, including public submissions and the source code for our models, over the coming months.

Timeline from 31 May:
– Within 10 working days: the Minister of Climate Change must table the advice in the House of Representatives, as set out in the Act.
– Once the advice is tabled: the Commission will release the advice publicly. It will be published on our website along with some supporting information. Further information including submissions and the source code for our models will be progressively published throughout June and July.
– 31 December 2021: the Government must have set the first three emissions budgets out to 2035 and released its first emissions reduction plan.
