Enspiral is a Wellington-born network of over 200 entrepreneurs building social enterprises.
Enspiral wants Aotearoa New Zealand to be a world leader on climate change mitigation and demonstrate innovative, achievable pathways to zero emissions. They are concerned about how long it is taking for the world to take appropriate action and the lack of leadership being displayed.
Enspiral's submission pointed out that New Zealand is an island nation heavily reliant on exports and tourism - and so needs to build strong relationships with international partners. They advocated for a cross-party, cross-demographic, cross-region, cross-sector consensus on the target date for zero emissions, and for initiatives to be incentivised to make this happen.
