He Waka Eke Noa: Primary Industries commitment to reduce on-farm GHG emissions

In October 2019, the Government announced that agriculture would not be entering the emissions trading scheme (ETS). Instead they accepted an industry proposal He Waka Eke Noa outlining the industries five-year work plan to support and accelerate the actions necessary to reduce agricultural emissions. He Waka Eke Noa is a collective commitment by the primary sector in response to the challenges posed by climate change in achieving enduring progress towards the goals of reducing and mitigating agricultural emissions and building resilience of our primary sectors.

During this webinar the following topics will be discussed:

  • An overview of the intended purpose of He Waka Eke Noa
  • Key milestones under the agreement and actions planned to meet industries commitments
  • What does is mean for the primary sector if we are to be successful or otherwise
  • What role could rural professionals play under He Waka Eke Noa
