Currently waiting for a response from Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Michael Brown

Dear Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment,

I have a number of questions relating to Government Procurement Rule 20 (Transitioning to a net zero emissions economy and designing waste out of the system) which is designed to reduce emissions and waste across the public service (Priority Outcome 4).

On your Priority Outcome 4 webpage (https://www.procurement.govt.nz/broader-...), three focus areas are listed: Office supplies, Light vehicles, and Stationary/Process heating systems.

Please provide information to answer the following questions:

1. What other areas does MBIE deem to come under the Rule 20?

2. If MBIE deems that Rule 20 does not apply to air travel by public servants, reduction in use of plastic packaging, and procurement of kitchen appliances, what other All-of-Government rule(s) governing these three specific examples are you aware of?

3. Aside from Government fleet emissions, does MBIE monitor compliance with Rule 20 by public agencies and, if so, what is the monitoring regime involved?

4. What other MBIE reports are available on agency compliance with Rule 20, aside from Government fleet emissions?

5. What process does MBIE follow to help agencies improve their compliance with Rule 20, if and when it is identified as deficient?

Yours faithfully,

Michael Brown
