New Zealand’s power company says it’s ‘staggering’ the costs of solar and wind generation in the country

New Zealand has the lowest carbon emissions per capita of any developed country in the world, according to a new study.

The OECD Carbon Tracker released Wednesday shows that New Zealand ranks fifth in global rankings for CO2 emissions per head of population and second only to the United States, according the report.

“We’re the only developed country where you can see this significant difference,” New Zealand Chief Scientist Dr Michael Coates said.

“If you look at our total carbon footprint, we’re ahead of many other developed countries.

It’s stunning to see the difference.”

A study by Carbon Tracker also shows that a third of New Zealanders live in households that are less than half the national median income.

“It is astonishing that New Zealand is so low on the carbon ladder compared to the rest of the developed world, and that is very hard to comprehend,” Mr Coates told ABC News Breakfast.

“That is not just in the New Zealand context, it is a global phenomenon.”

In fact, New Zealand ranked in the top 20 of the OECD for its carbon intensity index, or COI, a measure of emissions per unit of income.

The report also found New Zealand to be the world’s most environmentally-friendly country, with a carbon intensity of just 0.1 per cent.

“New Zealand has made huge strides over the past 10 years to tackle the issue of carbon emissions,” Mr Rau said.

The Carbon Tracker’s findings show that New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia ranked among the worst in terms of carbon intensity.

“There are very few states in the OECD, which has more than 10 per cent carbon intensity, that don’t have substantial carbon reductions under their own policies,” Mr Nolles said.
