Bainbridge Island, WA (PressExposure) July 08, 2011 -- Forestry Research Associates (FRA) is urging those interested in the carbon forestry market and forestry investment in general to attend this year's Carbon Forestry 2011 event in Auckland, New Zealand.
"This event is an essential for land owners, investment advisers, carbon credit purchasers and others from New Zealand who have an interest in carbon forestry," stated Peter Collins, an analysis partner at FRA - an advisory and research consultancy.
New Zealand's Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) is something that should be supported, claimed FRA. The event organizers stated: "New Zealand's Emissions Trading Scheme is an important market mechanism in providing real incentives for businesses to reduce their carbon emissions and create a better future." The event intends to provide an opportunity for interested parties to find out more about the ETS and how it will impact them. The occasion will also help to convey why forestry is such an "important part of the scheme."
FRA explains that carbon forestry is a concept that is intended to encourage countries to look after their forested land and to embark on more managed and sustainable forestry projects to reduce the increase in CO2 released as a result of deforestation. As countries increase their amount of forested land, they can obtain carbon credit that allow them increase industrial activity, for example.
The ETS in New Zealand gives forestry managers and investors a unique opportunity to make moves into the potentially lucrative carbon trading market, while helping to safeguard the future of the nation's forests. The event's mission statement reads that the forestry industry is: "Now in a unique position to lead the country in building a successful and innovative carbon trading market."
The event will take place at the Crown Plaza from July 13 and will incorporate sessions on a huge range of topics relating to carbon forestry, including sessions on the country's economic outlook, where carbon trading fits into climate change targets and a variety of case studies to help delegates form a better idea of how the market works.
