Auckland Climate Festival was created to bring these actors and organisations together to enhance collaboration and build climate action at an individual and societal level. Climate change is a systemic challenge requiring all sectors and disciplines to work more closely together to develop and scale-up innovative solutions at pace.

All event hosts, speakers, partners and volunteers at Auckland Climate Festival are expected to adhere the following code of conduct: 2.3.1. Auckland Climate Festival is an initiative that welcomes all voices, but we do not encourage events that benefit from the sponsorship or direct financial support of businesses, organisations or groups that are antagonistic to the need for climate action and a net-zero future. We expect event organisers to embrace the rich vibrancy and diversity of Tāmaki and its communities, and ensure climate action brings people together, emphasising climate justice, humanity and a just transition. 2.3.2. Auckland Climate Festival is collaborative and inclusive, ambitious, and solutions focused.
