You are here: Consultations > Consultation on proposal to exempt small and remote landfills from the ETS
The Minister for Climate Changes Issues sought feedback on a proposal to exempt operators of small and remote landfills from obligations in the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS).
Consultation closed on 5pm, 12th June 2012.
A factsheet (PDF, 152 KB) was published discussing the proposed exemption.
The proposal to exempt evolved from recommendations of an independent panel which reviewed the ETS in 2011, and a report (PDF, 436 KB) commissioned by the Ministry for the Environment which investigated whether there may be a case for providing exemption.
