Cooperation potential between Germany and New Zealand in decarbonising the manufacturing sector

Franziska Teichmann is leading the implementation of the Australia-Germany Energy Partnership and the New Zealand-Germany Energy Dialogue.

This study, conducted by the German-New Zealand Chamber of Commerce and Adelphi, investigates the potential for cooperation between Germany and New Zealand in decarbonising their manufacturing sectors, which are significant sources of greenhouse gas emissions in both countries.

In 2022, the manufacturing sector was responsible for 22% of Germany’s emissions, making it the second-largest source after the energy sector. Similarly, in New Zealand, the manufacturing sector, excluding utilities and construction, accounted for 13% of emissions, also ranking as the second-largest emitter following the primary sector.

The report provides a detailed overview of the current industrial landscapes in Germany and New Zealand, focusing on energy consumption and emission outputs. It also examines the existing policy frameworks aimed at emission reduction in both countries, including CO2 regulations, incentive systems, and funding schemes. Moreover, the study identifies potential areas for collaboration between industries and governments, emphasizing policy, economic, and technical cooperation.

By presenting a comprehensive analysis of the status quo and highlighting future cooperation opportunities, the report aims to inform policymakers and industry experts about the critical role of bilateral partnerships in advancing the decarbonisation of the manufacturing sector.

Join us on day two of conference, to hear more from Franziska as she will discussing the potential for collaboration between New Zealand and German businesses in decarbonising their manufacturing sectors.
