The study estimates how an average Norwegian lifestyle affects the global climate. It identifies options for reducing these lifestyle emissions, assesses their respective effectiveness, and creates scenarios for how targets for emissions reduction could be met. It assesses the country’s lifestyle carbon footprint, and how these impacts could be reduced in line with international commitments to limit global warming to well under 2 degrees Celsius (°C), aiming for 1.5 °C. In contrast to the official statistics on greenhouse gas emissions, which include emissions only from domestic sources, the footprint perspective includes emissions related to imported goods.
