In 1973 Social Credit produced a 28 page document titled 'You and Your Environment'. It was way ahead of its time. Our monetary reform policy will enable us to continue to be the leaders in the protection, conservation, and enhancement of environmental resources, including land, water, air, and biodiversity.


Social Credit will:


• Ensure that human well being and sound ecology, not the profit motive, governs all our decisions

• Monitor the effects of such decisions to ensure the desired outcome is being achieved


• Replace the Emissions Trading Scheme with measures to reduce pollution and provide financial assistance to help agriculture and industry meet the new emissions standards

• Increase programmes for, and investment in, waste minimisation and recycling and explore innovative ways to make use of waste

• Not allow any further rubbish tips to be opened, but rather invest in waste-to-energy plants for disposal of rubbish that cannot be reused or recycled

• Amend the Resource Management Act, to reflect these goals, and to reduce hearing costs and delays

• Implement regional development programmes for flood control, soil conservation, energy conservation and water quality, with nil interest loans from the Reserve Bank

• Reverse the drift to urban centres by production initiatives enhancing local employment opportunities

• Ensure New Zealand's marine environment is patrolled and protected, and seek an international agreement preventing the dumping of nuclear and other toxic wastes at sea

• Actively pursue prosecution of illegal gill-net trawlers within the Economic Zone

• Establish a NZ Environmental Research Institute, which will report on solutions to common global environmental problems, including biological and genetic control


• Phase out the use of 1080 aerial drops as quickly as practicable in favour of more environmentally friendly pest management tools
