As well as stimulating jobs at a time of economic uncertainty, our initiative will make our economy more resilient and protect our natural environment, without going further into debt.
We will announce details of the initiative at 11am today. The announcement is being streamed live on the internet, so you can join in from wherever you are.
Our aim to stimulate 100,000 new green jobs is the third of our major election priorities. The others are to bring 100,000 children out of poverty by 2014, and to make our rivers and lakes safe to swim in again.
We're proud of our smart solutions and we look forward to sharing them with New Zealanders during the election campaign.
