Industrial allocation: NZUs for industry

This page has information on the allocation of New Zealand Units for eligible industrial activities.

About industrial allocation

Industrial allocation provides assistance to the parts of the economy most heavily affected by the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS). Allocation is given to businesses whose activities are considered emission intensive and trade exposed.

It does this by allocating New Zealand Units (NZUs) to persons carrying out eligible industrial activities.

For more information, see Industrial allocations [Environmental Protection Authority website]
