Annual reports on NZ Emissions Trading Scheme published
Annual reports on New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) published by EPA
4 August 2014
The Environmental Protection Authority has published
the latest annual data reports on the New Zealand Emissions
Trading Scheme on its website. http://www.epa.govt.nz/e-m-t/reports/ets_reports/annual/Pages/default.aspx
The reports are:
• 2013 ETS Report (also known as the Section 89 report)
• ETS 2013 - Facts & Figures (informal factsheet)
• 2013 Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Levy Report (new)
The reports provide information on how many businesses were in the ETS, how much greenhouse gas they emitted or removed, and give year-on-year comparisons. The new Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Levy Report provides details of how the levy was applied from 1 July 2013.
The EPA has responsibilities under the Climate Change Response Act – for administration of the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme and the New Zealand Emission Unit Register (NZEUR).
In doing this, we work with the other administrative partners (Ministry for the Environment, Ministry for Primary Industries, New Zealand Transport Agency and the New Zealand Customs Service).
Publication of annual operational data maintains
the transparency of the Scheme for participants, allocation
recipients and interested parties.
Reports for the previous years of the operation of the ETS are also available here. http://www.epa.govt.nz/e-m-t/reports/ets_reports/annual/Pages/default.aspx
