Zero Carbon Bill economic analysis: A synthesis of economic impacts

Publication date:  June 2018
Publication reference number:  ME 1369

The Zero Carbon Bill proposes new, ambitious 2050 targets for reducing New Zealand’s greenhouse gas emissions. The Our Climate, Your Say discussion document refers to some of the economic impacts of each target option, which have been assessed by modelling. This report synthesises the series of economic analyses: modelling and other supporting economic studies, and their different strengths and weaknesses, to assess the economic impacts of target options and the wider impacts of stronger climate action.
