New Zealand: New Zealand Proposes Biofuels Mandate

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   NZ2021-0010

The New Zealand Government is proposing to introduce a sustainably-produced biofuels mandate for transport fuels in New Zealand. It would take effect in 2023 requiring a level of biofuels which would reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transport fuels by 1.2 percent and reaching a reduction of 3.5 percent by 2025. The proposal assumes biofuels will be imported for the majority of the volume required at least into the medium term.
