NZBA supports MBIE’s timely review of New Zealand’s research, science and innovation system (RSI). Our submission focuses on the role of RSI in climate change adaptation and mitigation, particularly in relation to climate data. A key concern for our members in the climate change space is access to data. Data is crucial to ensuring businesses can measure and understand their emissions profile, make meaningful and accurate climate disclosures, and make investment and lending decisions that will help New Zealand adapt to climate change and transition towards a net zero economy.
