Māori engagement strategy
We are committed to engagement with Māori, with a focus on fulfilling our obligations to work with Māori in the spirit of true partnership.
Our objective is to protect Aotearoa New Zealand’s environment and taonga, in accordance with tikanga.
As part of our refreshed strategy of applying a 3, 30, 300 years’ intergenerational lens to our role in protecting the environment, we wish to build a stronger partnership with Māori – to be a trusted partner of Māori. This does not mean that we expect to agree on everything, but that we grow our understanding of each other’s motivations, interests, and responsibilities.
Our Māori engagement strategy details how we would like to engage with Māori.
