Federated Farmers recognises that New Zealand has made a commitment to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions in accordance with the Paris Climate Agreement. We also understand that emissions from agriculture account for half of NZ's total emissions - our emissions profile is globally unique, and because of this, the way we design climate change policy is also unlike any other country in the world. We are working closely with Government as they implement their climate change agenda and were involved with working groups on climate change science, including the Biological Emissions Reference Group. Federated Farmers is a signatory to HE WAKA EKE NOA document which outlines the primary sector’s climate change commitment to reduce net on-farm emissions..  Read our submission on the Zero Carbon Bill below for a comprehensive understanding of our position on climate change and the ETS
