Description

Oslo is the first city in the world to have a climate budget.

The climate budget has been developed as a governance tool in the effort to achieve Oslo’s C02 emission targets.

We invite you to come to this session to explore what Oslo’s climate budget means for the private sector.
We have invited a number of speakers from both the public and private sector to share their insight on how this innovative document will impact the business community.

Speakers

Vice Mayor Robert Steen
will give an overview of Oslo’s Climate budget - how it is used as a tool of governance for the public sector and the significance of it being managed by the Dept of finance.
