Emissions of greenhouse gases in Norway decreased by 3% from 2018 to 2019. Last year they were 51 million tonnes, which is the lowest in the country since 1993.
The decrease corresponds to a reduction of 1.6 million tonnes of CO2 equivalents, according to figures from Statistics Norway (SSB).
The largest reduction comes from road traffic, which registered a decrease of 665,500 tonnes of CO2 equivalents, corresponding to 7%.
That is due to, among other things, an increased proportion of biofuels in the fuel mixture.
The only field with an increase in emissions is “heating in other industries and households,” which was up 93,200 tonnes.
