Norway’s maritime industry is a world leader in the development of low- and zero-emission solutions, and there are competitive companies in all segments of the industry.
The Government wishes Norway to make full use of the opportunities arising from the in greening of the economy. Norway will have to undertake a challenging process of fundamental transformation to meet its emission reduction commitments. The labour market will have to be green, smart and innovative.

Renewal of the Norwegian shipping sector will be an important driver of this process.
