Oslo Plans to Reduce CO2 Emissions by 95% by 2030

Oslo – The Norwegian capital Oslo announced on Friday that it plans to slash CO2-emissions by 95% by 2030.

“This is the most ambitious climate strategy of any major city in the world,” Oslo mayor Raymond Johansen underlined in a statement.

“Together with Oslo’s inhabitants and economic actors we want to work during the next 11 years to remove the remaining sources of climate gas emissions in the city,” he noted.

Oslo is this year’s European Green Capital and its municipality also wants to decrease car traffic overall by a third compared to 2015, through the use of public transport, bicycle paths and pedestrian walkways.

Norway, the top oil producer in Western Europe, is already the world’s leading per capita adopter of electric cars.
