Enough talk, it’s time for action, says 17 municipalities in Østfold. In order to achieve their climate objectives, the municipalities, county councils and county governor are collaborating in “Klima Østfold”. The municipal joint action plan is a tool for implementing measures to reduce both greenhouse emissions and energy consumption. According to calcula-tions, emissions can be reduced by around 20 per cent. A comparative study has been carried out for all municipal climate and energy plans, and a regional action plan is produced annually. The work with Klima Østfold has led to a range of measures, including joint purchasing agreements for electric vehicle charging poles, gradual divestment from oil heating in municipal buildings and the testing of fossil-free machines.
