The ETS Review Panel has released an issues statement for consultation. The statement includes a list of consultation questions, and can be downloaded below.
The Climate Change Response Act 2002 requires a review of New Zealand’s Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) to be completed before the end of 2011. The review is being conducted by an independent Review Panel, who will report to the Minister for Climate Change Issues by 30 June 2011.
The consultation document, Emissions Trading Scheme Review 2011 – Issues statement and call for written submissions does not set out the views of the Panel but rather presents its understanding of the current impacts of the ETS overall and its impacts on each sector. The questions for consultation are framed in such a way as to allow interested parties from any sector to respond with their views.
Under its terms of reference, the review is to focus on the high-level design of the NZ ETS. The review will take into account different scenarios for what might happen internationally to tackle global climate change after 2012. The review will also look at whether the transition measures introduced in 2010 should end as scheduled and the ETS scale up to a full obligation after 2012.
The terms of reference for the review make it clear that the review will not be revisiting the need for an emissions trading scheme or looking at other responses to climate change.
