New Zealand Forest Owners Association, 14 August 2018  ||  Forest owners are calling the proposed revisions to the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) both timely and necessary if New Zealand is to hope to meet its greenhouse gas reduction targets.

Forest Owners Association President Peter Weir says the Te Uru Rākau discussion paper is appropriately the first significant document to be produced by the new forestry unit established within the Ministry for Primary Industry.

“The Ministry for the Environment quite correctly states ‘The ETS is New Zealand’s main tool for reducing greenhouse gas emissions so it’s important it is a credible and well-functioning scheme that helps us meet our climate change targets.’”
