    ExportNZ Letter of Support for BusinessNZ's Submission on Low-Emissions Economy

    15 Jan 2020 | BusinessNZ

    I am writing to express ExportNZ’s support for BusinessNZ’s submission to the Productivity Commission (the ‘Commission’) on its Issues paper entitled ‘Low-emissions economy’, dated August 2017. As with BusinessNZ, we welcome the Commission’s issues paper outlining its thinking about how New Zealand can maximise the opportunities and minimise the costs and risks of transitioning to a lower net-emissions economy. The Commission recognises that is not an insignificant challenge and has worked through a wide range of issues in a methodical, deliberate way, and should be congratulated for its thoughtful assessment of the issues it has undertaken in a relatively short period of time.

    ExportNZ Submission on Our Climate Your Say Zero Carbon Bill Discussion ...

    15 Jan 2020 | BusinessNZ

    ExportNZ absolutely agree that climate change is a very real global issue that needs to be addressed, and that New Zealand must do its part. However, we question whether the Zero Carbon Bill is the solution to New Zealand’s climate change commitments, given the current target of a 50% reduction of GHG from 1990 levels is already a stretch target and will come at an annual real GDP cost of $8.6 billion between 2017-2050, according to NZIER economic modelling.

    Submission on the ETS Review

    28 May 2012 | BusinessNZ

    ExportNZ is concerned about maintaining the international competiveness of our exporters with any strengthening of the NZ Emissions Trading Scheme as is being proposed. This effectively would catapult NZ into leading the world in terms of the stringency with which we price carbon across the NZ economy. See our submission here.
