Greenpeace protesters have this morning scaled the walls of parliament buildings and are now on the roof. 

Four activists have scaled on to the roof of parliament house with eight solar panels. 

They have also pledged they will reveal a banner targeting Prime Minister John Key.

Chief policy advisor for Greenpeace New Zealand Nathan Argent reports the project is being held to draw attention to climate change, and what the organisation sees as failures by the government to address the issue. 

Argent said in the wake of flooding and extreme weather events, the government needs to take action. 

"Our government needs to put in place a real climate action now. John Key has had seven years to take climate change serious and to take action, but instead he's failed to introduce a single piece of law to reduce climate pollution."
