Latest National Environmental Indicators

The Ministry for the Environment collates and reports national environmental information.They use a core set of 22 national environmental indicators across 10 environmental domains (air, atmosphere, biodiversity, consumption, energy, fresh water, land, oceans, transport and waste).

Report cards, sometimes referred to as indicator updates, provide updated information on these 22 indicators.

In October 2012, MFE published five new indicator updates:

  • Air quality (particulate matter PM10)
  • Stratospheric ozone
  • Recreational water quality in New Zealand
  • Household consumption expenditure
  • Solid waste disposal.
