Register for this Event  

The CSIS Energy and National Security Program is pleased to host The Honorable Vidar Helgesen, Norwegian Minister of Climate and the Environment, for a discussion on Norway’s climate policy, challenges, and opportunities.

A top global producer of natural gas and the leading European producer of petroleum liquids, Norway is a champion of sustainable development and climate action. Norway continues to move forward on climate policy through its ambitious goal of a 40 percent reduction of greenhouse gases by 2030 and becoming carbon neutral. A key element is the engagement by industry and other stakeholders in “the green transition,” making use of the new economic opportunities that a low-carbon future entails. Multilateral engagement on climate is also key for Norway, which recognizes the potential security challenges related to climate change.
