Transition Leadership Group


The Transition Leadership Group was set up to help the country move towards serious and speedy action on climate change.

The group aims to enable senior business leaders to shift the narrative of climate change.

The national conversation needs to outline the huge business opportunities that will come from the transition to a low carbon economy, as well as the impacts and risks.

The group worked closely with other Climate Action Groups to develop a collective approach that unifies their work. They also provided a critical piece of coordination, to avoid duplication of effort by other groups. They did this by sharing their information, plans and resources.

The group is co-led by Greg Nelson from The Warehouse and Simon Ngawhika from EY.

In the future, this group aims to support other action groups as they work to identify organisations that will play an important part in the transition to a low emissions future.
