In the climate plan that will be presented on Friday, the government will order municipalities, counties, and other public bodies to buy emission-free cars, vans, and city buses.

The information was reported by Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).

The climate report, which will be presented at noon on Friday, contains a number of measures that will help reduce Norway’s climate emissions in the future.

One of the measures is that all cars and vans purchased by the state, municipalities, counties, or other public bodies must be emission-free from 2022. 

Exceptions

Exceptions may be granted for some purchases such as emergency vehicles.

“In the climate report, the transport sector will play a key role in cutting emissions in the future. 

“We will now really use the public procurement power to ensure new and climate-friendly technology,” Minister of Climate and Environment Sveinung Rotevatn (V) told NRK.
