Korea's greenhouse gas emissions

South Korea’s Park Geun-hye administration scores zero when it comes to the willingness to scale back emissions of greenhouse gases. The Park administration evades the responsibility to address climate change by increasing nuclear power plants and losing grip on emission trading. Korea is the world’s seventh largest emitter of greenhouse gases. In other words, Korea bears a great duty in helping the international community reach a consensus to respond to post-2020 climate change.

New Zealand Green Party Solar Homes Policy (2014)

Solar power is one of the greenest forms of electricity generation we have. It gives families independence from the big electricty companies. With no fuel cost, it insulates families against future power price rises.

Under the Greens' Solar Homes initiative, Kiwi families and households will be able to get low-cost loans from the government to pay for solar power installation, repay the loan via their rates, and enjoy free, sustainable power for decades.


Solar Schools

Cleaner, cheaper power for our schools.

The Green Party has a comprehensive plan for cleaner, cheaper power for all New Zealanders. This extends to our kids. 

We will help schools reduce their power bills by investing $20 million into solar PV systems in schools, allowing schools to benefit from cheaper, cleaner power. 

Schools' power bills are too high. Our policy will let them save money on electricity - money which can be invested directly into teaching and learning instead.
