In 2021, greenhouse gas emissions from traffic on Norwegian roads increased by 3.8%, according to the Norwegian Public Roads Administration.

“This is due both to the fact that we drove cars more in 2021 and that there was a lower amount of biodiesel mixed into the fuel,” department director Grethe Vikane in the Norwegian Public Roads Administration noted in a press release.

In 2020, car driving was reduced as a result of the corona pandemic, with home office and shutdowns. Last year, however, car traffic was closer to a normal year.

In total, in Norway, greenhouse gas emissions fell by 0.3% last year.
