Christchurch City Council could follow Environment Canterbury and Nelson City Council in declaring a climate emergency.

The council's sustainability committee is discussing the idea today.

Committee chair Vicki Buck told Chris Lynch it could then be put to a full council meeting on Thursday.

She says nobody can put their hand on their heart and say the world isn't on the brink of an ecological and climate catastrophe.

Buck says the cost of not taking action is profound.
