In this report, we use National Accounts data from Statistics Norway to calculate the resource rent in the natural resource industries in Norway in the period from 1984 to 2022
Plastic has become a major environmental issue in recent years and is a topic of increasing attention. This report aims to create a more complete picture of plastic fluxes in Norway based on available data sources.
This working paper was prepared for the 28th meeting of the London Group held on September 26-29, 2022, in Siegburg, Germany. The paper discusses current progress on ocean accounting in Norway.
On the one hand, wind power production is necessary for decarbonizing the electricity sector. On the other hand, we risk replacing one environmental problem with other environmental problems, that is, stopping climate change in exchange with increased loss of pristine land and biodiversity.
The EU has recently proposed carbon tariffs at the border (CBAM – Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism) as part of its Fit for 55 policy. Norway’s climate policy is linked to the EU’s. This report addresses the direct and indirect impacts of a carbon tariff policy on Norwegian industries and the general economy when Norway’s climate policies are linked to the EU’s.
In this report we study the effects of the increased CO2 tax under non-ETS (specifically, reaching NOK 2 000 per tonne of CO2 in 2030). We apply the SNOW-NO model (Statistics Norway’s World model – Norway), which is a numerical general equilibrium model where Norway is modelled as a small, open economy, while the rest of the world is reduced to imports and exports.
Energy generated from land-based wind power is expected to play a crucial role in the decarbonisation of the economy.
Economists have neglected place attachment as a potential explanation for people’s preferences for environmental goods.
Transportation is one of the main contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. Climate regulations on transportation are often a mix of sector-specific regulations and economy-wide measures (such as emission pricing).
Unmanaged and overgrown coastal heathlands pose a great fire hazard. This is due to the combination of old, dead heather and the growth of spruce and juniper, which are highly flammable and burn explosively.
