Whanganui Chronicle - - Front Page -

DairyNZ and its Cli­mate Change Am­bas­sadors are en­cour­ag­ing all dairy farm­ers to en­gage with the Gov­ern­ment in con­sul­ta­tion on the Zero Car­bon Bill. Con­sul­ta­tion started on Thurs­day and runs for six weeks. DairyNZ is run­ning work­shops on cli­mate change for dairy farm­ers through­out June. The Taranaki work­shop is on June 21 and the Manawatu¯ one is on June 22. Farm­ers can regis­ter at road­show. Meth­ane and green­house gases from the dairy sec­tor make up 22.5 per cent of New Zealand’s emis­sions — and nearly half of its agri­cul­tural emis­sions.
