Since 2013, importers of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and perfluorocarbons (PFCs) contained in goods and motor vehicles have faced a carbon price through a levy.
The levy is linked to the price of carbon and is updated annually by the Ministry for the Environment to reflect prevailing Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) costs.
