Prime Minister Proposes Norway Be “Carbon-Neutral” by 2050

20 April 2007

Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg presented three goals and commitments for a new climate policy in his speech to The Norwegian Labour Party’s national congress with the ultimate goal of making Norway a carbon-neutral country by 2050.

The Prime Minister also stressed the correlation between the fight against climate change and the fight against poverty.

The three commitments for a new climate policy are as follows:

  • Norway will sharpen its emission cuts obligations under the Kyoto Protocol by 10% in the period up to 2012. Under Kyoto, Norway’s obligation is not to increase its emissions by more than 1% of the 1990 level during the 2008–2012 period.

  • Cutting emissions of greenhouse gases equivalent to 30% of emissions by 2020.

  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to 100% of its emissions. This does not mean no emissions, but it does mean that each tonne of greenhouse gases emitted is to be offset by an equivalent reduction elsewhere.

Norway intends to implement measures at home and abroad in order to meet these goals. The government has agreed to the proposal of a 30% cut in emissions by 2020.
