Understanding your rights & responsibilities under the emissions trading scheme

Over the last decade carbon has been a growing focus point for most governments across the globe. In New Zealand this is primarily managed using the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS).

Our team can help you remain compliant and advise on structuring your forestry operations to maximise the benefits of forest carbon. If you are thinking about planting, we can help you determine land eligibility and potential carbon value.

If you have questions about how the ETS works, then our consultants are the best people to talk to. We can also help you offset emissions from other business activities using carbon generated from your forestry investment.
