The new emissions plan

From The Panel, 4:10 pm on 25 October 2019

The Government and the agriculture industry have come to an agreement where farmers can avoid being shifted into the Emissions Trading Scheme if they commit to a new sector led plan - called He Waka Eke Noa.

Farmers will improve their tools for estimating and benchmarking emissions on farms, will commit to more R&D on greenhouse reduction technology and other initiatives.

Professor Dave Frame - Director of the NZ Climate Change Research Institute joins the discussion.
