The New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme (NZ ETS) is one of the longest-running ETS worldwide, in place since 2008.
As part of a greater policy reform, auctioning has been introduced as the default method for allocating New Zealand Units (NZUs) to market participants from 2021 onwards.
A joint bid by the New Zealand Exchange (NZX) and EEX has been selected by the NZ Government to develop and operate the managed auction service. While NZX will host and operate all auction-related processes, EEX will contribute the bidding and provide expert support.
Auctions will be scheduled quarterly > see the Auction schedule at the right side.
Auctions will be open for participation to all New Zealand Emissions Trading Register account holders.
You can access the auction platform at the following link:

About the EEX-NZX cooperation:
NZX and EEX announced a Co-operation Agreement in December 2019, with a focus on securing new opportunities in the New Zealand emissions market. Beyond the New Zealand carbon market, both NZX and EEX will be jointly exploring areas for co-operation in other regions and/or asset classes.
