Protecting New Zealand’s competitive advantage

29 April 2024

A new report, Protecting New Zealand’s Competitive Advantage, by Chapman Tripp for The Aotearoa Circle has revealed the pressure on New Zealand exporters to keep up with international expectations on sustainability, with more than 80% of New Zealand’s exports by value now going to countries with mandatory climate-related disclosures either in force or proposed.

The report is a point-in-time snapshot which focusses on two key trends:

  • new climate and sustainability reporting requirements including climate-related disclosures; and
  • emerging trade measures that relate to climate change and sustainability. 

The report provides material which enables government and business alike to both recognise key trends that are shifting the global operating environment for New Zealand companies and pin-point specific regulations that may affect them.
