New Zealand main host for 2008 UN World Environment Day with the slogan Kick the C02 Habit Edit

David Parker Minister Responsible for Climate Change Issues for New Zealand: "We're proud to be hosting World Environment Day in 2008. New Zealand aims to become the world's first truly sustainable nation. Our plan to become climate neutral involves a goal of generating 90 percent of our electricity from renewable sources by 2025, and halving our per capita transport emissions by 2040 by introducing electric cars and a requirement to use bio fuels. To incentivise climate-friendly behaviour we're introducing an emissions trading scheme, which includes all sectors and all gases. Agriculture and livestock is an important sector in New Zealand's economy. New Zealand is already a world leader in agricultural research, and is turning its expertise towards research to reduce agricultural greenhouse gas emissions, for example, methane from livestock."
