Norway's pioneering carbon approach

Report summary

Norway introduced its first carbon tax in 1991 and has developed world-leading legislation and standards over the past 25 years. The country's upstream companies, led by Statoil, already pay the highest carbon tax price globally and operate in accordance with policies that challenge them to reduce their carbon emissions from oil and gas production. Norway presents a role model for other nations to follow to reduce carbon emissions.
