With the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (NZ ETS) currently under review, businesses are becoming increasingly aware of the need to account for their greenhouse gas emissions and understand their emissions profile. ChanceryGreen advises a number of corporate and industrial clients on emissions management, and is assisting clients with understanding how the NZ ETS will likely impact on their operations in an increasingly carbon-constrained world. ChanceryGreen advises on the types of emissions units that exist internationally, and the potential for generating and, if appropriate, trading emissions units (both Kyoto Protocol credits and voluntary market credits) from various projects.

Our clients include both those who are seeking to meet their regulated obligations or trade surplus credits, and those who aspire to carbon neutrality through voluntary measures. We deal with a variety of clients from a range of sectors, including:

  • Forestry
  • Industrial processes
  • Transportation
  • Oil refining
  • Agriculture and horticulture
  • Infrastructure and major project development
  • Large corporations (seeking to reduce their carbon footprint)
  • Renewable energy generation
