Norway produces the highest per capita emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) in Europe, at 42 kilograms annually, according to NGO The Future in Our Hands (FIVH). To meet its commitment to cut NOx emissions by 30 per cent from 1990 levels by 2010 under the Gothenburg protocol, Norway will have to reduce annual emissions by 38,500 tonnes in just over two years, FIVH claimed on Friday. Coastal shipping and the oil industry account for 61 per cent of emissions between them, the group says. See FIVH press release and report (both Norwegian).
