Environmental issues are too important for New Zealand to be left to the fringe of politics. That is why National founded the Bluegreens in the 1990s and it continues to grow in strength and numbers. It is one of the most active of National’s Policy Advisory Groups and now works closely with a strong Caucus group chaired by Nicky Wagner.
Bluegreens believe that successful economic and environmental policy can and must go hand in hand to provide a cleaner, greener, brighter future for all New Zealanders.
National has worked hard to provide real leadership on environmental issues in a sensible “Bluegreen” way that also supports better jobs and a growing economy.
