Proposed Emissions Trading Scheme improvements attract support

Date:  18 April 2019

Media release from Climate Change Minister James Shaw:

Submissions on improvements to the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) show that there is broad support to make improvements to the scheme, says the Minister for Climate Change.

The Ministry for the Environment has today released a summary of submissions made during last year’s consultation on improvements to the ETS. 

“I would like to thank everyone who took the time to make submissions on the proposals,” James Shaw said.

“Just over 250 submitters contributed their views from a variety of sectors. We heard a consistent message that providing more certainty is important to scheme participants which is why we are putting in place more predictable processes to manage the supply of units over time.”
