We are pleased to announce final details for the Pre-Conference Workshop hosted by Te Uru Rākau New Zealand Forest Service in association with the New Zealand Institute of Forestry (NZIF).

Key Pre-Conference Workshop Details:

  • Title: Professional Development for Consultants Working in Carbon Forestry
  • Host: Te Uru Rākau New Zealand Forest Service in association with the New Zealand Institute of Forestry (NZIF).

  • Day: Tuesday 29 August 2023
  • Time: 9am – 11.45am
  • Venue: Main conference room, Distinction Hotel Rotorua

The focus is on key areas of ETS participation in the forestry sector that have either recently been amended or are often misunderstood. The goal of this session is to correct common misinterpretations and provide clarity on the process and associated obligations on participants when undertaking transactions in the ETS.

This work will include:

  1. Common issues which can delay processing of various ETS applications; how to overcome them.
  2. A walk through of the newly available spatial data from LINZ.
  3. An examination of edge case mapping issues.
  4. An overview of the Risk based regulatory approach and what this means in practice for participants and agents.

More room in our conference venue

We’ve have added a second room with additional seating and bar leaners in the Kauri Room adjacent to the main conference room. This will give everyone more space and allow delegates to move between rooms while still having a full audio and video live feed.

With our real coffee cart (sponsored by Anderson Lloyd) located in this room as well, you have the option to move between rooms to enjoy a coffee during any session and the opportunity to stretch your legs while keeping up with the presentations and Q&A content.
