Abstract: New Zealandís bioeconomy needs to expand and develop into one focused on sustainable design and renewable resources to meet the countryís future financial, social and environmental needs. Products from biomass can replace petroleum products and more. New Zealandís largest source of biomass is planted forests. Trees have the potential to produce everything we need to transition to a circular bioeconomy. Aligning energy and raw material needs with resources and infrastructure would enable the production of high-value products, and utilisation of materials currently viewed as waste, thus creating prosperity in the regions and across the country. National, strategic and corporate leadership is needed now to build consensus and impetus to develop long-term planning and implementation. (no keywords)
