Deadline for industry to remove coal boilers

From Checkpoint, 6:12 pm on 8 April 2021

The government today has brought in a deadline for industry to stop using coal-fired boilers, without applying one to the boilers it owns.

Everything from wool scourers to dairy processors have until 2037 to phase out their high carbon emission boilers.

But as Conan Young reports, no such deadline is being introduced for coal boilers at schools and hospitals.
