ETS security reminder

Your ETS register account should always remain secure. If you suspect that someone else knows your username or password, contact the EPA immediately and change your password.

Here’s some quick tips to keep your account secure

  • We recommend you regularly review your account to ensure the correct Account Operators, who are people who can do transactions, remain up-to-date (you can check this through the Register Public Reports)
  • If we ever phone you, we will always identify ourselves as from the EPA.
  • All EPA emails will come from an @epa.govt.nz email, or @emissionsregister.govt.nz address.
  • System generated emails do not contain any links for you to click on.
  • EPA staff will never ask you for your login details.
  • If you are unsure about the validity of any calls you receive regarding your NZETR Account you should hang up and call back on 0800 Climate (0800 254 628), Overseas callers:+64 3 962 27 08 (normal phone charges apply)

Consultation on the Zero Carbon Bill is now open

Consultation on the Zero Carbon Bill is underway, now is the time to have your say.

All New Zealanders have a part to play in deciding how New Zealand responds to Climate Change. The Zero Carbon Bill will set the long term commitment to transition us to a low-emission, climate resilient economy. Consultation runs until 5pm 15 July and you can find out more and join the conversation at ourclimateyoursay.nz

Annual Emissions Return: 'One for two' phase out

A reminder that the 'one for two' phase out is happening in three stages, for the following reporting periods:

  • 2017 - 1 unit for each 1.5 whole tonnes of emissions
  • 2018 - 1 unit for each 1.2 whole tonnes of emissions
  • 2019 - 1 unit for each 1 whole tonne of emissions

Equivalent changes apply so that recipients of Other Removal Activities entitlements receive a phased increase to their entitlement.

There is no change to obligations for agriculture participants as they are not currently required to surrender New Zealand Units (NZUs) to account for their emissions.

Second Forestry Mandatory Emissions Return Due

The second Forestry Mandatory Emissions Return (MER) period for the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) ended on 31 December 2017.
All participants that have registered post-1989 forest land in the ETS on this date are required to submit a MER between 1 January and 30 June 2018.
This return will reconcile all units to be claimed or surrendered in the period 01/01/2013 to 31/12/2017.

How to get a new migration code to access the NZETR

All the migration codes we sent to let people transfer to the new register have now expired.

If you didn't use yours in time, you'll have to contact us on 0800 CLIMATE (0800 254 628) to get a new one emailed to you. When you call, select Option 2, and be prepared to answer some security questions to confirm your identity.

Login as an 'existing user' if you were a user of the old register, the New Zealand Emissions Unit Register

To login, go to www.emissionsregister.govt.nz and click on the RealMe login field.

You will have two options from this window:

  1. login as an existing RealMe user if you already have a RealMe login
  2. Or 'create a RealMe login' if you haven't signed up for RealMe yet.

When you've logged in using RealMe, you'll be taken to a new page to enter a few details to link your RealMe identity to your NZETR account.

  • You must login as an existing user. To do this: Enter your new migration code.
  • Enter the telephone number you listed for your NZEUR account. Don't put in any dashes or spaces for your phone number, just the digits.

Note: Ignore the section for new users – this is for people who weren't users of the NZEUR (the old Register).

Enjoy the new register

When you've done this, you should have access to all your details. Take a moment to check everything works for you.

Now you've logged in successfully with your new migration code, in future you'll only need your RealMe login.
