National Climate Change Management Agenda
The Agenda sets out targets and objectives for 2030, 2040 and 2050 both regarding climate change mitigation and adaptation. The mitigation policy aims at increasing ambition on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction as well as their removals. The Agenda emphasises the importance of mitigation for the sectors energy, transport, industry, agriculture, waste and forestry.
In Chapter IV, the Agenda sets out detailed mitigation targets for the different time periods and sectors. Notably, in section 23.1, the Agenda sets out "to reduce GHG emissions by 100% compared to 1990 levels by switching to innovative, low-emission, environmentally friendly technologies and the use of RES in all economic sectors, including up to 20 % of removals by natural sinks from the LULUCF sector, and the use of environmentally safe carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) technologies to offset GHG emissions in sectors where technological options for zero GHG emissions will not be available."
Net zero by 2050 including up to 20% removals
