9th August 2021 Newsletter
I am looking forward to seeing many of you this Sunday at the CPD sessions and AGM, and more of you Monday and Tuesday for our conference. Third time lucky they say, so fingers crossed. I would like to thank the conference committee who have worked on this conference for over 2 years now in very difficult conditions, and have managed to adapt to change rapidly. I would also like to thank our speakers, most of whom have managed to move with us as we have had to postpone this conference twice already. I appreciate the time and flexibility you have shown us. Finally to our sponsors, without you this conference would not go ahead. Thank you to all of you.
I am looking forward to the Future Foresters Quiz night on Sunday. This is always a fun night and is a great way to meet the future of our industry. The Future Foresters group are very well organised and are working hard to promote our industry to the future generations. I want to thank their leadership group for all the work they put into growing our future generations and for the positive promotional work they do for our industry.
Likewise I am looking forward to our awards dinner. It is always satisfying to acknowledge this within our industry who have won and award. We will also be hearing from Minister Nash, it is always interesting to hear what future the Government envisages for us.
You will all have receive a notice for the AGM, along with relevant reports. Please make an effort to attend if you can, and if you can not, but have a question you would like to ask council, please ensure you get these questions to Raewyn well before the meeting and we will attend to them at the meeting. Also if you are an apology please send this to Raewyn as well so we can acknowledge at the AGM.
Many of you may have heard that Jason Wilson has been appointed DDG of Te Uru Rakau - New Zealand Forest Service. I would like to congratulate Jason on his appointment. I would also like to acknowledge the work of Henry Weston as acting DDG. In his short time in the role he met with mosey organisation within the sector, helping explain the role of the New Zealand Forest Service, but more importantly listening to those within the industry. Thank you Henry for listening and I wish you all the best with your future.

Applications to register land in the Emissions Trading Scheme
Applications to register land in the Emissions Trading Scheme must be approved by Te Uru Rākau – New Zealand Forest Service by 31 December 2022 if applicants want to claim New Zealand Units for the 2018–2022 mandatory emissions return period and have the option of using stock change accounting. Otherwise averaging accounting will apply from 1 January 2023. Applications to register land can take around six months to process and are processed in the order they are received, so should be submitted as soon as possible.
To help forecast the volume of applications, anyone who is considering registering post-1989 forest land in the ETS is asked to complete a brief survey on their intentions.
There is further information and a link to the survey in the latest issue of the Sustainable Forestry Bulletin on our website.
Please share this information as appropriate.
If you have any questions about these changes please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org

New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme
The Government recently announced two consultations relating to market governance and industrial allocation in the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (NZ ETS). They propose further refinements to the NZ ETS, to ensure a fair and efficient market.
Designing a governance framework for the NZ ETS
The Government is seeking feedback on a range of options for designing a market governance framework for the NZ ETS market. The options address risks associated with three themes: governance of advice, governance of trading and governance of market conduct. To read the consultation document and for information on how to submit your views, visit the market governance consultation page.
Reforming industrial allocation in the NZ ETS
This consultation looks at options to reform industrial allocation policy to ensure it is aligned with New Zealand’s international and domestic emissions targets while continuing to mitigate the risk of emissions leakage. To read the consultation document and for information on how to submit your views, visit the industrial allocation consultation page.
Both consultations end on Friday 17 September 2021 at 5.00pm.
The Ministry for the Environment’s NZ ETS team will be hosting webinars to inform the public about these consultations, providing an opportunity for people to ask any questions they have about the proposals.
