Forest Carbon has new free online tool
Forest Carbon can now be assessed using a FREE on line
EITG has released a new on line tool that allows owners of post 1989 or Kyoto Forest under the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme quickly assess the amount of NZU units they would receive if they entered into the ETS.
EITG Director Richard Hayes stated “this simple tool provides forest owners a way of estimating the number of carbon credits or NZU units they will receive if they enter the ETS. It is a straightforward matter of entering area, age class, species and location and we email back an estimate of NZU that would be issued” he said. The service is FREE.
The tool uses the MAF approved look up tables and is dependent on a number of factors such as the exact forest area and therefore must be treated as an estimate only subject to the final approved area measurement and approval of an application to MAF to enter the NZETS.
