Today CO2 New Zealand announced expansion of its carbon forestry program into the Taupo catchment. The company is seeking expression of interest from anyone considering carbon development.
Greg Adlam, Chief Executive Officer of CO2 New Zealand said the company is keen to work alongside landowners to advance long-term forest carbon sinks and carbon markets in New Zealand.
“CO2 New Zealand will tailor carbon purchase and risk management arrangements to the particular needs and wants of individual landowners.
“We appreciate that, for landowners, the benefits from carbon and nitrogen can be significant. This is why we offer a premium product that benefits all parties involved.
“We also understand the risks from deforestation and complicated scheme compliance need to be worked through. This is something we offer alongside our long term carbon off take contracts,” says Adlam.
Landowners are invited to receive CO2 New Zealand’s disclosure statements and Landowner Carbon Data Sheet, or get a second opinion about other carbon arrangements they may be considering.
CO2 New Zealand manages a large portfolio of carbon assets and structures arrangements for emitters with compliance obligations under the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme.
CO2 New Zealand is a specialist carbon forest developer and carbon credit manager formed earlier this year by the majority shareholders, the iwi-owned Tukia Group and leading Australian carbon asset developer CO2 Group. The company has been working with Central North Island landowners to establish sustainable carbon projects.
CO2 Group is a leader in the market and the region’s largest carbon forester and has been active in global carbon markets since 2004.
