The 2015 budget lays the foundation for achieving the Government’s long-term goal of making Norway a low emission society. “We have started out on the road towards a low emission society. The future winners will be those who saw the green shift coming and grasped the opportunities. Norway wants to be wearing the green jersey. That will be no easy task. But the budget we are presenting today will facilitate restructuring. I’m a restructuring optimist,” said Climate and Environment Minister Tine Sundtoft. In the budget, the Government proposes a number of measures that will help to achieve both short- and long-term climate goals. These apply to the budget areas of many different ministries. The proposal implies that the Climate Agreement will be followed up and strengthened. “Climate policy is cross-sectorial. There are no easy solutions. But the totality of the measures proposed in the budget points towards the necessary restructuring. The oil industry will no longer be the growth engine in the Norwegian economy. This is reflected in our budget proposal,” emphasised Sundtoft.
