Climate Change Minister James Shaw says iwi and landowners will be important allies as he develops plans for a zero carbon economy.

The Greens leader says during the coming year he will work on what such an economy will look like, identify where with the jobs and economic opportunity will come from and then set the zero carbon emissions target into law.

He says Maori assets are heavily affected by climate change, whether through rising seas or extreme weather.

"I actually find working with iwi in particular to be a real breath of fresh air because most of them are saying we are in this for the really long term and also climate change is one of their highest priorities," Mr Shaw says.

Where's the business backbone?
John Tamihere: It beggars belief that business confidence is down, and to me this reflects major problems based on capacity and capability of our business leaders.
We are not mates with Australia
