In our UN Global Compact City Scan, we identified major concerns around greenhouse gas emissions from transport, city organisational operations, waste, and land and agriculture as well as divergent understanding of climate change among our people. Council’s Communities for Climate Protection 2001 emission inventory showed that the largest share of community emissions resulted from the transport sector (32%), followed by industrial (30%) and waste sectors (21%). Residential and commercial sectors contributed to the emissions significantly less (9% and 8%, respectively). New Zealand has a relatively high proportion of renewable energy at approximately 80% due to hydro, geothermal and wind sources. Rotorua is well-placed in relation to local geothermal and bioenergy (from forestry) resources. Where are we going? Rotorua will be a leader in the area of energy efficient Council operations, reduction in fossil fuel for transport and energy, and local uptake of renewable energy. Our communities will be knowledgeable and take effective, affordable action to reduce their impact on our environment. Objective 6
