    Push-back from the energy industry ... on the Government Emissions Reduction Plan

    Push-back from the energy industry ... on the Government Emissions Reduction Plan


    The multi-billion-dollar announcement includes trade-in and lease schemes for owners of gas-guzzling cars, and money for public transport and cycleways.

    Hundreds of millions of dollars are going into decarbonisation, and reducing agricultural greenhouse gas emissions - with money for developing green fuel and energy alternatives.

    Energy Resources Aotearoa, Chief Executive, John Carnegie says he believes policies already in place would have delivered enough reductions to meet net zero by 2050.

    He says they're looking hard for the cost-benefit analysis, and the analysis that suggests we need to do these things now -- and to date they haven't found them.
