Environmental Reporting Series

Find statistics and information about the state of the New Zealand’s environment, co-published by Statistics NZ and the Ministry for the Environment.

As required by the Environmental Reporting Act 2015, we publish a report on each of the following domains every six months – air, atmosphere and climate, land, fresh water, and marine – and a synthesis report on the state of New Zealand's environment as a whole every three years.

This page provides links to these reports.
