CHH Negotiates Greenhouse Agreements With Govt.

Carter Holt Harvey manufacturing businesses to negotiate Greenhouse Agreements with New Zealand Government

Carter Holt Harvey today announced that a number of its major manufacturing units will enter negotiations with the New Zealand Government on Greenhouse Gas emissions.

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.

As Australasia’s leading forest fibre processing company Carter Holt Harvey strives to balance environmental sustainability with a need to stay internationally competitive.

“The NGA process offers a way to constructively work through these issues with the Government well ahead of the introduction of emission charges in 2008,” Mr Springford said.
