Presseinvitasjon til arrangement: Veien til en ny klimaøkonomi

Verden og Norge trenger en rask overgang til miljøvennlig transport, energi og bygg, ifølge den nye rapporten fra New Climate Economy-kommisjonen. For å få dette til, må man ifølge rapporten blant annet fjerne fossile subsidier, satse mer på forskning og utvikling og prise utslipp av klimagasser.

Klima- og miljøminister Vidar Helgesen, leder av Finans Norge Idar Kreutzer og New Climate Economy-kommissærene Sharan Burrow og Christian Rynning-Tønnesen inviterer til diskusjon om hovedkonklusjonene i den nye New Climate Economy-rapporten, "The Sustainable Infrastructure Imperative: Financing for Better Growth and Development".

 

Tid: Tirsdag13. desember kl 09.00-11.00
Sted:
