Carbon News - Intelligence for the carbon market

About Carbon News

Carbon News is New Zealand’s only daily news service covering the carbon markets, climate change, sustainable business and the growth of the low-carbon economy.


Editorial Principles


  • Carbon News is committed to high standards of editorial independence; our story selection is based on news value alone. We do not accept payment for stories. Where we have had some commercial connection with an organisation we are writing about, this is disclosed.
  • Carbon News accepts the science of climate change. We do not run “climate scepticism” stories. That debate is long over.
  • Carbon News believes that strong and urgent global action is needed in order to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.
  • Carbon News asserts that New Zealand has a moral obligation, as both a wealthy country and as one of the world’s worst per capita emitters of greenhouse gases, to play a leadership role in action on climate change. We do not consider this country’s current policies go far enough.
  • Carbon News supports the use of market instruments as tools to reduce greenhouse gases and other environmental costs.


Carbon News is owned by Adelia Hallett, who has previously worked for the New Zealand Herald, Radio New Zealand, the Northern Advocate, the Manawatu Standard and Management magazine. She has also worked in communications and public engagement roles for a range of other companies, agencies and organisations including Dick Smith Electronics, the Ministry of Fisheries, the Department of Conservation, the Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union, the Council of Trade Unions, the Pest Management Association, the Bus Drivers Union, Television Spaceman, the Business Council for Sustainable Development, the Soil and Health Association and the Biodynamic Farming and Gardening Association.


She is currently the climate advocate at Forest & Bird.
