Climate Futures event at Arendalsuka, Bærekraftsscenen 19. August 14:15-15

Most private and public actors in Norway have made targets for when thy should reach zero with regards to emissions of greenhouse gasses.

The ambitions and strategies vary for companies and municipalities, but common for most is that they have to take into consideration the transition risk which prevail at any given time. In this, there are many factors playing a role, like reputation, political regulations, and last but not least the increasing climate risk.
