Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Levy

Each quarter we publish updated information on the activities relating to the synthetic greenhouse gas levy.

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 ETS costs.
