About the data
MPI provides this data to help market participants understand New Zealand Unit (NZU) supply in the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS).
This data doesn't include forest registered in the permanent forest sink initiative (PFSI).
Data may change
The number of post-1989 forestry participants changes as MPI works to resolve compliance matters relating to:
- transmissions of interest – when forest land or rights are transferred to someone else
- the outcome of reviews of forest eligibility.
