Urgent change needed to move NZ to low-emission economy

From Nine To Noon, 9:08 am on 27 April 2018

The Productivity Commission has spent a year researching how NZ can move towards becoming a low emission economy. It says the current policies are not reducing domestic emissions and urgent change is needed. It's recommending that agriculture be included in the ETS, a "feebate" scheme on imported vehicles and mandatory financial disclosures about climate risk. The chair of the Productivity Commission, Murray Sherwin joins Kathryn to talk through how it can be done.
