Recent events show that the international climate change context is less certain than previously anticipated. We think that the current emissions trading scheme is too rigid and may in fact frustrate the delivery of the outcomes sought from it. Therefore, we seek an assurance from you that in light of recent events the Government is taking stock of whether the current climate change policy settings which focus primarily on an emissions trading scheme remain appropriate for New Zealand.
