Biodiversity credits to incentive native trees? | Ian Brennan & Sam Mander

The age old saying ‘you need to be in the black, to be green’ certainly applies to the ability for New Zealand land-owners to bankroll the Climate Change Commission’s target to plant 300,000 hectares by 2035, or is it time for government policy to put a premium biodiversity credit to deter the easy money of carbon farming radiata pine’s?



Trustee of the Tane Tree Trust & Cambridge farmer, Ian Brennan, who’s journey is shared on the new documentary, O Tātou Ngāhere joins The Agribusiness Group’s environmental consultant Sam Mander on the panel to share how established native forest at scale is costly but benefits which accrue from a native forest equate to more than the sum of its trees and it’s time for a biodiversity credit scheme.
