NZETS Selling Land Under the ETS and Information for Settlement and Price Negotiation

Requests for information about post-1989 forest land

 

s194 of the Climate Change Response Act covers the provision of information about the status of forest land. It states that MAF must, on request, provide information about any post-1989 Carbon Accounting Area to:

  • a landowner if the holder of a forestry right or lease over that land is a participant; or
  • a prospective transferee, or holder of a forestry right or lease who has the written consent of a landowner who is a participant.

The information must include the unit balance of the Carbon Accounting Area (i.e. the liability), and any emission returns that have been submitted and the periods they cover.

Further information on land transactions are set out in our Forest Land Transactions in the ETS publication – link on this webpage: http://www.maf..govt.nz/forestry/forestry-in-the-ets
