Dear James Shaw,

Addressing climate change and achieving New Zealand's NDC's under the Paris Agreement, as you have publically stated, is an issue that cuts across most government portfolios and ministries.

I would like to request an inventory of all policy measures and programmes the Government currenty has in place to mitigate climage change emissions, encourage energy efficiency, promote uptake of renewables, reduce dependency on fossil fuels and transition to a low emissions economy.

Yours faithfully,

Dr Terrence Loomis

On behalf of the Hon James Shaw, Minister for Climate Change, Minister of
Statistics, Associate Minister of Finance, and Green Party Co-leader, many
thanks for your email.

We will endeavour to provide a full response as soon as possible. Where
the issue lies outside the portfolios of the Minister, we may transfer it
to a more appropriate office for a response. If you are inviting the
Minister to attend to an event or a meeting, our office will be in touch

While we consider all correspondence important, with all correspondence
carefully read and considered, it is not possible to provide a personal
response to every email which is received.

If the matter is urgent, please contact Dave Butler-Peck, Private

Many thanks again for taking the time to write to the Hon James Shaw.

Dear Terrence,

Good to speak on the phone this afternoon.

Many thanks again for your email to the Hon James Shaw, Minister for Climate Change, Minister of Statistics, Associate Minister of Finance, and Green Party Co-leader.

As discussed, I wanted to confirm that your email will be processed as ministerial correspondence, rather than a request under the Official Information Act (OIA).

I have therefore forwarded it to the Private Secretary for the Minister's Climate Change portfolio, who will follow up again in due course.

In the meantime, if you require any further assistance from our office, please don't hesitate to let me know.

Kind regards,

Dave
