New Zealand's Carbon Story
Under the terms of the Paris Agreement, signed in 2015, New Zealand is committed to reducing emissions to 30% below 2005 levels by 2030. A price on carbon is internationally regarded as a primary economic motivation to reduce emissions and drive investment in clean-emissions technology. Independent reports point toward a higher carbon price as an important part of New Zealand’s carbon emissions reduction. These reports indicate that higher carbon prices help to shift the economic burden of emissions onto emitters and fuel new alternative low-carbon drivers of economic growth.
New Zealand's Carbon Goals
Help New Zealand
deliver its fair share of international action to reduce emissions, including meeting international obligations
Deliver emissions reductions in the most cost-effective manner
Support efforts to maximise the long-term economic resilience of the new zealand economy at the least cost.
New Zealand developed an Emissions Trading Scheme as the primary tool to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. By placing a price on carbon, it helps to shift the economic burden of emissions from the government back to those who are responsible for it, and who are in a position to reduce it. A higher price for carbon stimulates clean technology and market innovation, which fuels new low-carbon drivers of economic growth.
