    Some interesting insights from MAF

    New Zealand can reduce its reported emissions by increasing imports;

    New Zealand’s industries can move domestic production into countries with weaker environmental legislation or no reduction commitments; the “pollution haven hypothesis’ also called carbon leakage.

    A country with emissions intensive exports based on its natural resource endowment will face tight restrictions on future growth.

    Finally, emissions from international transportation are technically not allocated since they do not occur within a countries political jurisdiction.
