Details of the Request

1) What positive impacts, if any, has the NZ Emissions Trading Scheme contributed in meeting our 2020 carbon emissions target?

2) How much have domestic NZ companies and businesses paid overseas to purchase carbon credits?

3) Are there any plans in place for NZ to replace the ETS with another model, given that it was a campaign promise of New Zealand First?

4) What are the projected benefits the One Billion Trees initiative will bring to helping us meet our carbon emissions target?
