Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Levy
Each quarter we publish updated information on the activities relating to the synthetic greenhouse gas levy.
We'll be carrying out a small upgrade to our website today, Thursday 28 October at 5.30 pm. There will a short disruption during this time. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
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.
