On 24 September 2009 the Government introduced the Climate Change Response (Moderated Emissions Trading) Amendment Bill to Parliament, proposing a number of changes to the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (NZ ETS).

This bulletin contains a summary of these changes and a series of questions and answers on key changes in the Bill and the intended operation of the amended NZ ETS.

Please note: The answer to the question “How much will the NZ ETS cost the average farmer?” has been amended since the original publication of this bulletin in September 2009.
