Improvements to the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (NZ ETS)
The New Zealand emissions Trading Scheme (NZ ETS) is the Government’s main tool for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It does this by putting a price on greenhouse gas emissions. The price on emissions is intended to create a financial incentive for businesses who emit greenhouse gases to invest in technologies and practices that reduce emissions. It also encourages forest planting by allowing eligible foresters to earn New Zealand emission units (NZUs) as their trees grow and absorb carbon dioxide.
The Government seeks feedback on a range of proposals to improve the NZ ETS.
The Government is also seeking feedback on a proposed package of changes to improve the ETS for forestry participants.
