The ETS covers:
The company that produces the metals, mineral and chemical transformations detailed above, and therefore emits the gases, will be the participant.
The Government will compensate trade-exposed, emissions-intensive firms by allocating some NZUs to them that they can use to offset their increased costs. These costs may be due to their obligation to surrender NZUs, and/ or due to higher energy prices under the ETS. See Industrial allocation – NZUs for industry for more information.
Regulations setting out data collection and emissions calculation methods for industry came into force on 1 January 2010. Full text of the regulations and explanatory material will be available. The regulations will be available in hard copy from Government bookshops.
