Carbon Forestry 2012
When: Aug 22 - 23, 2012
Where: Auckland, New Zealand
Organized By: Forest Industry Engineering Association
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 event of its type focused on carbon forestry and carbon trading opportunities. While 2011 set the scene, much has already changed. There is a raft of new legislation, a dramatic drop-off in carbon trading and pricing during late 2011 and early 2012, the banning of some international emissions units and uncertainty surrounding the future alignment of New Zealand and Australia’s trading schemes.
This has led to significant uncertainty in the marketplace. The immediate future and opportunities that exist in carbon forestry is being readdressed. Carbon Forestry 2012 has been designed with key New Zealand forestry companies and Maori landowners along with New Zealand, Australian and international carbon traders, brokers and financial companies.
The programme will provide an essential update for all involved in carbon forestry’s future and for both the financial and forestry industries in this part of the world.
