Description:

The Government has come to an agreement with the opposition parties on the further development of Norwegian climate policy. The agreement implies that more than three quarters of the members of the Norwegian Parliament support an ambitious climate change policy: - Norway intends to cut the global emissions equivalent to 100% of its own emissions within 2030. This way, Norway will become a carbon neutral nation - Norway will undertake to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by the equivalent of 30% of its own 1990 emissions by 2020 - Norway will strengthen its Kyoto commitment by 10 percentage points, corresponding to nine per cent below the 1990 level.
