Programme Details

Forestry has been an essential component of New Zealand’s Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) since the very beginning. Forestry is New Zealand’s largest potential carbon sink and, as the ETS continues to grow in importance to NZ businesses, so does its investment future.

Last year over 250 forestry and finance business leaders came together for Carbon Forestry 2011, the first ever event focused on carbon forestry and carbon trading opportunities. While 2011 set the scene, much has already changed and Carbon Forestry 2012 will be a must see event for the industry this year.

“Carbon Forestry 2011 was a very specialised field and you attracted, by and large, an excellent range of speakers and a very high calibre of attendees“

A raft of new legislation, a dramatic drop-off in carbon trading and pricing during 2011, the banning of some international emissions units and uncertainty around the future alignment of New Zealand and Australia’s trading schemes has changed the landscape significantly. It’s led to uncertainty in the marketplace about the immediate future and opportunities that exist in carbon forestry.

The 2012 programme will attract a wide cross section of New Zealand and Australian companies.

Topics covered in Carbon Forestry 2012:

  • One year after the Government’s 2011 ETS review, what has changed?
  • Now that Australia has carbon tax and will introduce an ETS by 2014, how will the two countries work together?
  • Where are major international carbon markets, how do they view forestry and will this affect Australasia
  • What are the key investment opportunities within carbon forestry
  • How can companies reduce their exposure to market risk
  • Insights into iwi groups and their impact on New Zealand’s carbon forestry
  • Case studies from the early movers
  • The implications of political, economic and market uncertainty
  • Demand and growth within the carbon offset market

“Well run, very relevant, thanks so much for organising it“
