ABSTRACT
The article looks at the statement issued by Achim Steiner, the executive director of the United Nations' Environment Programme, that New Zealand businesses must demand a clear explanation of how the government will create a low-carbon economic future for the country. He urged businesses to take a leading role in demanding action on climate change and carbon emissions. He said one reason behind business' frustration with the climate change issue is a lack of certainty surrounding regulatory frameworks.
