Christchurch Economic Ambition

Our Economic Ambition

Ōtautahi Christchurch is ambitious. We want to grow our economy in ways that are good for business, people and the planet.

We want a future that’s based on a regenerative economy – where more carbon is eliminated than produced and there’s a focus on reusing, repairing and repurposing materials, rather than taking, making and disposing of them.

Part of this is changing how we act but that alone will not solve the world’s challenges. It will also take innovation — and leading the way with climate-positive innovations will bring prosperity.
