CHRISTCHURCH RESIDENTS CALL FOR FASTER ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE
Christchurch residents have told their council they want action on climate change faster than the government has proposed.

While the government's Zero Carbon Bill sets the target of New Zealand having net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, Christchurch City Council is aiming to reach that goal - excluding methane - by 2045, said council head of strategic policy Emma Davis.

"The feedback we have received from our residents showed they want us to take a more ambitious approach," Ms Davis said.

Last week, the council agreed to a plan that includes an interim target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent by 2030.

A goal of cutting methane emissions by 25 percent by 2030 and by 50 percent by 2045 was set.

"We were among the first councils in New Zealand to declare a climate and ecological emergency and it is important that we back that declaration up by showing our strong commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions," Ms Davis said.

In 2016 to 2017, Christchurch emitted about 2.5 million gross tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent. That equates to 6.6 tonnes per person, which is lower than estimates for Auckland of 7.9 tonnes and for Dunedin of 11 tonnes, but more than Wellington's average of 5.7 tonnes per person.

Transport is the biggest contributor to Christchurch's carbon emissions, making up 53 percent of the total.

Ms Davis said everyone in the community would need to make changes to achieve the 2045 carbon neutral target.

The council hopes to save $1 million a year on electricity and to reduce its carbon emissions after LED street lights are installed throughout the city.

Work to convert all of Christchurch's 38,000 street lights to LED lights is almost halfway through and is expected to be completed by June 2021. This is being funded largely by the New Zealand Transport Agency

Christchurch city councillor Deon Swiggs said once they LED lights were all installed, the city's electricity bill would be slashed and maintenance would drop by about $600,000 a year.

LED lights used less energy and reduced carbon emissions, while making streets safer by lighting them more brightly, Mr Swiggs said.

We are still looking for SINGLE MEN to come along to the speed dating event this Saturday night. We have a full contingent of keen lovely ladies.

Details are as below so jump on board for some fun. You don't have to love cats, you just have to love animals. Catnap is just the venue, and yes $10 of your entry fee goes to help Cat Rescue but hey it is sharing the love around and that is important also.

DID YOU KNOW: Men who like cats are awesome. Fact* 👱‍♂️🐈

Even better, we have 24 ladies who are keen to meet some awesome men at our Speed Dating event this coming Saturday! 😮 If you are, or know of, a cool dude who isn’t afraid to try something a bit different (and potentially meet someone special 🥰) jump over to our website to book a spot! - catnapcafe.co.nz/speed-dating

We still need men for all three age brackets in order for this event to go ahead: 20-30, 30-40 and 40-50. This is a great chance to meet new people, hang out with some super adorable cats and help raise much needed funds for Cat Rescue Christchurch - this event will raise at least $500 for them and with kitten season upon us they need all the help they can get! 💰

We need your help to make this happen so please spread the word by sharing: tag your mates, tag your mates‘ mates, make a sign that says ‘Toot for Catnap Speed Dating’ and stand on the corner, everything helps! 🚗
