Statement by Margot Wallström on Norway's intent to continue participating in the EU ETS

I welcome Norway’s announcement today that the country intends to join the EU 2030 framework for climate and energy policies and thus continue participating in the EU Emissions Trading System for the period after 2020. The Trading System is a key tool for achieving EU climate and energy targets for 2030. Norway’s agreement to join further strengthens Europe’s position ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference to be held in Paris at the end of the year.
