CEO Peter Springford said the business units to enter the Negotiated Greenhouse Agreement (NGA) process with the Government are Carter Holt Harvey’s Paper, Pulp, Tissue, Cartonboard, Reconstituted Wood Panels and Plywood businesses.
“When completed, the NGA’s will commit Carter Holt Harvey to best practice in managing greenhouse gas emissions, while helping to ensure our international competitiveness is not eroded by emission charges under the New Zealand Government’s Climate Policy,” Mr Springford said.

“The NGA process offers a way to
constructively work through these issues with the Government
