The CAT's New Zealand emissions projections for 2030 are 8% to 17% lower compared to CAT's previous projections in December 2019, and the 2020 projections are 14% to 23% lower.

New Zealand submitted its updated NDC in April 2020. The update did not strengthen the country's 2030 target, which the CAT rates as 'Insufficient'. New Zealand did hint at the possibility that it could strengthen the target in 2021; however, this is not in line with the agreed ratchet up cycle under the Paris Agreement
The CAT calculates New Zealand's emissions under currently implemented policies and in the wake of the COVID-19 economic downturn. Compared to the latest historical data in 2018, emissions will decline by 12-21% from 79 MtCO 2 e in 2018 to 62-69 MtCO 2 e in 2020. Emissions are projected to fall 9 to 18% compared to 2018 levels by 2030 to 65-72 MtCO 2 The CAT compared GDP projections from OECD, IMF and five scenarios from the New Zealand Treasury (IMF, 2020; New Zealand Treasury., 2020; OECD, 2020). The CAT uses the scenarios that show the largest range of emissions for 2030 to account for the uncertainty of the impact of COVID-19, in relation to assessing the NDC target
