Norway’s long-term low-emission strategy for 2050


This strategy is Norway’s answer to the call for all countries to develop long-term low- emission strategies, as set out in the Paris Agreement. Such strategies are additional to the emission reduction targets countries communicate in their binding nationally determined contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement. This strategy does not, therefore, entail any new international commitments for Norway, but is based on the targets already set out in the Act relating to Norway’s climate targets (Climate Change Act). It is divided into three chapters. Chapter 1 describes the basis for a low-emission society and the global, regional and national starting point for a low-emission development pathway. Chapter 2 gives an account of Norway’s climate targets and describes what Norway will be like as a low-emission society in 2050 once these targets have been achieved. Chapter 3 describes the Government’s general priorities and important considerations for the pathway towards a low-emission society.
