Climate plan with major consequences

If New Stavanger is to reduce its climate emissions by 80 per cent by 2030, all haulage, distribution and logistics by road and by sea must be converted to electric within 11 years.

This goal can have significant consequences for farming and animal upkeep as well as food production. This is proven by numbers Rosenkilden has analysed. In November the Stavanger City Council passed a new plan on climate change.

However, the majority of council members ignored the administration's guidelines and adopted a plan where the aim is to reduce climate emissions by 80 per cent by 2030. This will mean radical changes: Boats, cars and tools must be electric, houses must be fitted with solar panels, wood burners replaced and enormous investments to be undertaken by the municipality, by the business sector and by the inhabitants themselves.

The demand for emissions cuts will increase when the merger of the municipality together with Finnøy and Rennesøy takes place in a year – municipalities with entirely different business structures and emission challenges to Stavanger.
