You can make a joint submission on the NZ ETS review and redesign of the permanent forest category consultations here.
Both programmes are open for consultation at the same time because they are interlinked. They both have significant implications for the forestry sector, but also New Zealand’s climate change response, rural land-use change and Māori interests.
To make a joint submission for the consultations you can:
- Write your submission in a word document or PDF
- Try to target your feedback to the relevant consultation feedback questionnaire.
- Submit your submission on the ‘provide general feedback’ page of either consultation
- Tick the check box marked ‘Is this submission for both the NZ ETS review and redesign of the permanent forest category consultations?’
The Govt. want to hear your thoughts on both issues and will try to incorporate all your feedback on both topics, regardless of how you provide them feedback.
