NZIF Newsletter 21 May 2018 (President's Column)

It has been a fortnight of continued positive news for the forestry sector in New Zealand. The Productivity Commission recently released its draft report on the low emissions economy, which has generated a lot of interest, including detailed analysis in an Insight programme on Radio New Zealand National this week. The report has 140 findings, 50 recommendations and asks 11 questions, on which the Commission would like feedback by Friday 8th June. There are a number of these that should be of interest to forestry professionals.

Overall the report is very supportive of forestry and recognises the critical role that forestry will play in reducing New Zealand’s greenhouse gas emissions.
