Allocation decisions

Each year we decide on the number of New Zealand Units (NZUs) allocated to eligible industry applicants. We publish the lists of these allocations here.

We make these decisions in accordance with section 86B(5) of the Climate Change Response Act 2002 (CCRA).

Some tables are updated to reflect amendments to final allocation decisions made in accordance with section 86C(1)​ of the CCRA.

NZUs have been allocated to eligible industry applicants to protect their competitiveness against producers that do not face equivalent costs for emissions.

All industry participants listed were eligible to receive an allocation of NZUs under the CCRA for the period of 1 January to 31 December of the relevant year, except for 2010 when allocations were received for 1 July to 31 December.

The final unit allocation figure reflects the total units given to a participant based on their actual production for the specified year.

The NZUs allocated under these decisions have been transferred to the respective New Zealand Emissions Trading Register​ holding accounts.​

Withholding publication of allocations

There is a legal requirement under the Act to publish final allocation decisions in the New Zealand Gazette, and to make this information available on the internet.

We publish the number of units your organisation received in respect of the reporting year.

You can ask us to consider withholding the publication of your allocation of units, on the basis that publishing this information would be likely to prejudice your commercial position unreasonably. Please contact emissionstrading@epa.govt.nz within 10 working days of receiving your allocation notice to make a request.

Pre-2018 allocation decisions

You can find allocation decisions from 2018 to date on this page. If you require decisions prior to 2018 you can request these by emailing us at CMEETSCompliance@epa.govt.nz.
