In a survey conducted for NHO, 36 percent of those surveyed say they believe climate change policies will lead to fewer jobs by 2030.
It is especially men, people living in Western Norway, and people with less education who believe these policies will lead to job losses, the Opinion survey shows.
While 36 percent of those surveyed believe that the restructuring will lead to fewer jobs by 2030, 32 percent believe that there will be more jobs.
NHO hopes that “more jobs” will prove to be the right answer.
– NHO has long seen an uncertainty, also among young people, whether there will be a job for them in the future. Our message to them is that climate change will be one of the strongest drivers for job creation in the future, and that Norway has great opportunities if we are able to seize them, says Mari Sundli Tveit, policy director at NHO.
Opinion has also asked whether people think it is possible for Norway to reach the climate goal for 2030 and at the same time have economic growth.
51 per cent of the respondents answered in the affirmative, while 31 percent believe that it is not possible to achieve the climate goals and at the same time have economic growth.
The skepticism is strongest among the respondents over 50 years old.
