About the event

Keen on trees, planting, the planet, Ōtaki Carbon Forests? (Who isn't?!) 

We are honoured to host Climate Change Commission Chief Executive Jo Hendy for a talk on the work of the Commission, and the Commission's advice on the role of forests in the transition to a low-emissions future. 

Jo Hendy has led the Climate Change Commission since its inception. She has a background in environmental and climate research. 

As Director of Research and Analysis for the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment, she led independent investigations into sea-level rise and agricultural greenhouse gas emissions. She also led the Commission’s precursor, the Secretariat for the Interim Climate Change Committee, where she oversaw the Committee’s inquiry into renewable electricity.

We can't wait. 

Thank you to WWF New Zealand and the Tindall Foundation for supporting this presentation.
