Did you know your native planting can generate revenue?
The New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (NZETS) offers native forest owners the opportunity to generate revenue through carbon credits. The carbon credits generated can then be traded for New Zealand Dollars and offset your planting cost.
If you are considering planting a large area:
- Get in touch with us for a free site visit
- We’ll put together a planting plan for you
- We’ll then put you in touch with GreenXperts who can use your planting plan to advise you on future eligibility and revenue returns which can offset, and even zero out the initial planting cost
If you’ve got an existing forest talk to our industry colleagues, GreenXperts who can advise you on eligibility, put together your NZETS application for you, and assist you with carbon credit trading. There are a few eligibility requirements that your forest must meet to earn credits, such as forest size, age, and average width. In order to receive units, periodic Mandatory Emissions Returns (MER) must be submitted. The next MER period will be 2023-2026. Successful applications must be made by end 2026 to claim units in 2027.
