New Zealand has several plans underway to help reduce the carbon footprint on the planet, right from promoting public transport and making better footpaths for people to walk/cycle on to working towards waste reduction on an industrial level, to help control emissions.

 As part of the Paris Agreement and working according to UN guidelines, New Zealand aims at reducing emissions up to at least 30% as compared to what they were in the year 2005, by the year 2030.
