Quantified economy-wide emission reduction target for 2020

Norway’s emission reduction target

As part of a global and comprehensive agreement for the period beyond 2012 whereby major-emitting Parties agree on emission reductions in line with the objective of a maximum 2 °C global temperature rise, Norway will move from its initial pledge of an emission reduction target of 30 per cent by 2020 compared with 1990 levels to a target of a 40 per cent reduction for the same time frame.

An important feature of Norwegian climate change policy is the flexible and cost-effective Kyoto Protocol based approach. The continuation of the Kyoto Protocol or its basic elements as part of a future framework, in particular the availability of flexibility mechanisms for compliance with emission reduction commitments, is therefore an underlying premise for Norway’s emission reduction target. Norway underlined the importance of pursuing various approaches, including opportunities to use markets, as stated in paragraph 7 of the Copenhagen Accord.
