Kiwis like the environment so much that they want to make their country carbon neutral! For now, they have committed to produce 90% of their energy by using renewable resources. This is fantastic news that will hopefully inspire other developed nations to do the same.
The country already uses 70% renewable electricity, primarily hydro- and geothermal power and will continue to increase its use of renewables over the next 20 years.
Eventually, the Prime Minister would like to see the country carbon-neutral. â€œI have set out the challenge to our nation to become the first truly sustainable nation on earthâ€¦to dare to aspire to be carbon neutral,” Prime Minister Clarke said.
