What will my feedback do?
Your feedback will form part of the advice the partnership will provide to the Government in April 2022 on a potential pricing option.
Once the partnership advice is received, the Government has a period of time to consider the options. During this time, the Climate Change Commission will also review progress being made by the partnership, including against the legislated milestones, and will make a separate report to Government.
By the end of 2022, the Climate Change and Agriculture Ministers must put forward a report outlining the system that will price agricultural emissions as an alternative to the NZ ETS.
By January 2025, agriculture emissions will be priced.
If the He Waka Eke Noa legislated milestones have not been met, the Government can bring agriculture into the NZ ETS before 2025.
