  • Transitioning to a low emissions economy by 2050
  • Ensuring a rich and protected environment.

Eligibility Criteria

  • There are no specific requirements regarding who can apply.
  • Applicants can be an industry or a research
  • organisation or an entity specifically set up to represent and manage the partnership.
  • MBIE will only enter into an Investment Contract with a New Zealand based legal entity.
