Dubious carbon credits a thing of the past - Paula Bennett

8:16 pm on 24 April 2016

Climate Change Minister Paula Bennett says dubious carbon credits have been bought in the past, but that's not happening now.

A report released last week accused the government of allowing the purchase of fake carbon credits from countries that were not actually cutting emissions.

Speaking today on TVNZ's Q and A programme Ms Bennett said with the Paris agreement on climate change signed this weekend, nothing more needed to be done about those carbon credits.
