He Waka Eke Noa has delivered its recommendations to ministers on its preferred system to price greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture. He Waka Eke Noa – is the 13 member Primary Sector Climate Action Partnership that became a milestone in New Zealand tackling emissions across all sectors of its economy. Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor and Climate Change Minister James Shaw accepted the recommendations and the wider public will have the opportunity to provide their view before Cabinet makes final decisions towards the end of the year on how to effectively price emissions. Damien O’Connor says Customers around the world are demanding higher levels in the products they buy, so there is the potential for real competitive advantage here if we can get this right. The He Waka Eke Noa partnership has recommended a farm-level levy system from 2025 with separate prices for short and long-lived gases, and a shared governance approach to recommending levy rates.
