Signal of change / Oslo’s ambitious ‘climate budget’ sets the bar for other cities

Another signal that cities are leading the charge to a zero-carbon world?

"Oslo’s city government has issued an ambitious “climate budget” with the intent of halving its carbon emissions from 1990 levels by 2020, and becoming completely carbon neutral by 2030. To achieve this goal, the city plans to limit access for cars with new tolls and fewer parking spaces, power the bus fleet with renewable energy, increase cycle use and eliminate heating with fossil fuels in homes and offices."
