Norway 203040

Oct 25, 2016

The Norwegian government last year announced that the country will reduce its CO2 emissions from 1990 levels by 40% by 2030. This resulted in the initiation of the Norway 203040 Coalition – a coalition built on a shared ambition of making a substantive contribution to Norway’s low-carbon transition. 

Now moving into its second phase, the business-driven coalition comprises twenty leading businesses and four supporting partners. The coalition’s ambition is to help accelerate progress towards the climate targets by highlighting the range and scale of opportunity represented in the transition to a low-carbon society while also outlining a modest set of actions.

As one of the businesses in the Norway 203040 Coalition, Snøhetta is committed to supporting the government’s 2030 targets. We are doing this by identifying concrete actions, such as building plus-energy buildings – buildings that produce more energy than they consume. 

Through collaborations such as Powerhouse and The Research Centre on Zero Emission Buildings, Snøhetta has already completed several plus-energy buildings. The renovation of the office buildings at Kjørbo or the energy-positive family house in Larvik, show that it is possible to achieve plus-energy buildings. With great partners and many other ongoing projects, we continue to work towards a more sustainable future. 

Partners of Norway 203040 include: Agder Energi, Coca-Cola European Partners Norway, DNV GL, Hurtigruten, Hydro, IKEA Norway, Kongsberg Group, Marine Harvest, Nordea, Ruter, Snøhetta Oslo, SpareBank 1 Forsikring, Statkraft, Statnett, Statoil, Storebrand, Telenor Norway, TINE, Umoe, Veidekke, Elektroforeningen, WWF-Norway, Xyntéo, and ZERO.
