The Zero Emission Conference

The eigth annual Zero Emission Conference is to be held November 5 - 6, 2012 at Folketeateret, in Oslo city centre. The Zero Emission Conference is the largest of its kind in Scandinavia. The two day program spans across a wide range of topics and perspectives, from the visions to the specific solutions.

In ZERO, our aim for the conference is that it must be facts based, solution oriented and focus on the road to a low emission society. Most of all, we want the conference to inspire to concrete climate actions across sectors, local government, industry and political divides.

A long list of speakers have been invited from politics, business, public management and research from around the world to try to give answers to how the climate puzzle is to be solved.
