  • Carbon still remains within harvested timber

    2009 - 12.07

    Expectations are high amongst the forestry investment community from the most significant meeting on climate change this decade from the Copenhagen summit, which aims to reach a global agreement for both developed and developing countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

    Representatives from New Zealand are trying to acheive significant rule changes regarding forestry at the climate talks. The Kyoto treaty failed to take into account that much of the carbon that is presently claimed to have been released from the forestry,  still actually remains within the timber of the final wood product. Since there are now systems available to audit this, the minister for New zealand climate change, Nick Smith says the rules must recognise the fact.  He re-stated New Zealands commitment to reduce their carbon emissions by between 10 to 20 percent of 1990 levels.
