What are the Nordic energy policies? What are the greenhouse gas emission targets? This Category looks at low-carbon energy RD&D budgets, climate targets, etc.
Iceland has a long term visions of containing reductions of net emission of greenhouse gases by 50% to 75% until the year 2050, using 1990 figures as a baseline.
Due to electricity and heat being virtually CO2-free, Icelandic GHG emissions come predominantly from transport and from industrial process emissions. The sharp rises in emissions are due to the addition of new aluminium smelters.
