The Zero Carbon Bill - a closer look

​​​​The long-awaited "Zero Carbon Bill" was finally released on 9 May, but despite being greeted by considerable media interest there are a number of significant issues that have yet to come to the fore.

Zero Carbon Bill update: discussion document seeks public feedback

Public consultation that could have far-reaching implications for business is underway on the Government's proposed Zero Carbon Bill, following the release of a Discussion Document by the Ministry for the Environment. There is currently no draft bill; the Discussion Document seeks feedback on key questions of policy and systems architecture that will underpin the legislative regime. This is an early opportunity for those affected to have their say on the Government's approach to some fundamental questions as it seeks to transition New Zealand to a net zero emissions economy. Consultation closes at 5pm on 19 July 2018.
