The Ministry for the Environment has announced plans to make climate-related financial disclosures mandatory for some organisations, following on from last year's consultation, see the story below and contact our business reform Team if you wish to discuss further.

At CA ANZ we believe it's important to give te reo a go, even if you don't know much. Trying is better than not doing anything. Simple little commitments from us all can do so much for Te Reo Māori, like using kia ora (hello) and ka kite (see you).
