Ministry of Business Innovation & Employment (MBIE) Reports


The Ministry of Business Innovation & Employment (MBIE) have been working on a Circular Economy and Bioeconomy Strategy – Enabling a low emissions circular economy with a sustainable bioeconomy for Aotearoa New Zealand. 

New Zealand’s Emissions Reduction Plan includes an action to develop a Circular Economy and Bioeconomy Strategy. In 2023 the focus was on research and data collection to identify how Aotearoa New Zealand can best move to a more circular economy, and a sustainable bioeconomy.  This resulted in a series of work plans and reports, including some research into opportunities for NZ that included hemp.  

You can see the “Thirty Opportunities Emerging and future platforms in New Zealand’s bioeconomy” (see page 98 for iHemp).
