Proposed Clean Car Standard and Clean Car Discount for New Zealand
Earlier this month the Ministry of Transport issued a discussion paper entitled ‘Moving the light vehicle fleet to low emissions: discussion paper on a Clean Car Standard and a Clean Car Discount’. Comments and submissions are called for and must be submitted before 20th August 2019.
Submission Deadline: Tuesday 20th August 2019
We urge you, as Trust supporters, to take some time to submit a response. We all understand the importance of transitioning away from ICE vehicles to EVs, but there are many who will act to oppose it. We need people like you to stand up and make your voice heard, to let the government know it is on the right track and to drown out the nay-sayers.
It is important that as many people as possible make some sort of submission in response to the Clean Car Policy and Clean Car discount proposal from the Government.
The government has provided a Survey option, so you do not need to write a full submission for this proposal. We expect this means they will take note of the number of people who answer even yes or no for each question.
You should of course read the document and decide what your opinion is. But to help you, along side the governments discussion document we provide you a copy of our written response, and some guidelines prepared by Will Hunter with help from other #LeadingTheCharge Champions.
Here is The Better NZ Trust submission.

If you can find the 5-10 minutes to submit on this issue, it would be amazing.
