New Zealand introduces climate change law for financial firms

New Zealand introduced a law that will require banks, insurers and investment managers to report the impacts of climate change on their business. The law governs banks, insurers with total assets / assets under management of more than NZ$1 billion, and all equity and debt issuers listed on the stock exchange. Disclosures will be required for financial years beginning next year.

Step 1: Get loan issuers and insurers to claim as much impact of Climate Change as they can Step 2: Use claims to pass legislation forcing producers to adjust carbon output or face penalties Step 3: Companies need loans and insurance for new equipment and modifications to meet demands of new legislation

This does nothing. The cost will just be passed onto the everyday people. NZ is already a bloody expensive place to live.

Meantime China is opening one new coal fired power station every week which the Kiwi idiot politicians ignore because they don’t want to offend the CCP. There are 4 million Kiwis. Less than an average city in China. The NZ rules will make not a jot of difference. NZ, like some posters here are just Virtue Signaling and don’t live in the real world.
