New Zealand meets its 2020 emissions reduction target


Aotearoa New Zealand has met its 2020 target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. 

The Ministry for the Environment said: 

"New Zealand met the target — to reduce emissions to 5 per cent below 1990 levels over the period 2013–2020 — through a combination of carbon removals from forestry and international offsets. 

New Zealand used 6.5 million of 28 million surplus Kyoto-era emissions units to meet the 2020 target. These were units with environmental integrity left over after New Zealand met its previous (2008–2012) international emissions reduction target."
