Responsibly Delivering Value: A Minerals and Petroleum Resource Strategy

Issue for Business: The purpose of a strategy is to help shape an eventual set of actions. Its purpose is to act as a touch-stone against which subsequent actions can be prioritised. It acts as a tool to guide the allocation of resources to highest value use. This then gives meaning to one of its other key roles – that is, to act as an accountability mechanism to ensure that the highest value outputs (as inferred by the strategy) are being delivered. As a broad, generally accepted characterisation of the purpose and role of a strategy, we are left somewhat confused by ‘Responsibly Delivering Value: A Minerals and Petroleum Resources Strategy for Aotearoa New Zealand: 2019 -2029’. We are quite simply unsure what to make of this ‘strategy’ – both in terms of how to understand its meaning and therefore impact, and what action to recommend to our members to take as a result of it
