Submissions received on the proposed improvements to the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme

This page has the submissions that were received during the public consultation on the proposed improvements to the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (NZ ETS). The consultation ran from 13 August to 21 September 2018. 

Over 250 people and organisations had their say on forestry and non-forestry proposals for improvements to the NZ ETS. Submitters included individuals, businesses (such as businesses operating in the energy, forestry and agriculture sectors), iwi and Māori, academics, community groups and non-governmental organisations.

We have proactively released a joint briefing by the Ministry for Primary Industries and the Ministry for the Environment containing initial analysis of the submissions. The purpose of this briefing was to inform the Minister for Forestry and the Minister for Climate Change of the key high-level feedback received from the consultation. As this briefing was informed by primary analysis, the numbers presented may alter slightly once an in depth final summary of submissions is complete.

A summary of submissions will be released in early 2019.

While we have endeavoured to correctly name and redact submissions, it is possible there are some inconsistencies. If you note an inconsistency you would like fixed, please email etsconsultation@mfe.govt.nz
