Priority One in partnership with Tauranga City Council (TCC) and consultants Beca delivered a sector-based workshop to provide an opportunity for businesses across different sectors to contribute to Tauranga’s first developing climate action and investment plan (Climate plan). There was a lot of informative discussions which highlighted shared challenges between businesses.
Key points to note:
• Access to fund a businesses sustainability transition is a barrier.
• Shared solutions and collaboration between businesses has been a game changer to accelerate positive sustainability outcomes.
• Education and capability are needed, access to technical experts or prioritisation of first steps will provide business with confidence to take action.
The workshop created an opportunity for a baseline understanding of sector-specific mitigation and adaptation of business initiatives across Tauranga City and explored opportunities for collaboration.
