Publication reference number:  ME 1380

The Government is proposing improvements to the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (NZ ETS) and is seeking feedback. This consultation document sets out proposals primarily focused on improving the framework of the NZ ETS so that it is a credible and well-functioning scheme that helps us meet our climate change targets.

There is also a second set of proposals related to forestry to reduce complexity and other barriers to forestry owners being part of the scheme. The consultation document and related information can be read on the Ministry for Primary Industries website.

Submissions on the proposals in this document closed at 5.00 pm 21 September 2018.
