Submission on the Emissions Reduction Plan Discussion Document

The Ministry for the Environment called for submissions on its Emissions Reduction Plan Discussion Document

CA ANZ continues to be an advocate for, and supporter of, a just transition to a net zero economy. As a professional body, CA ANZ seeks to advocate in the public good on policy areas that impact our members, the accounting profession and the public. 

We recognise that climate change mitigation and adaptation will substantially rely on both macro and micro economic policies and the associated market and non-market mechanisms in which accounting practices are embedded. The profession can make a significant contribution to both climate change mitigation and adaptation at individual entity, industry sector and economy-wide levels. Accountants are ideally placed to be involved in risk management, operational resilience processes, reporting and measurement activities.

Our submission provides our high-level comments on agriculture, forestry and the role of tax.
