Over the next 10 to 15 years, the world needs to make extensive changes to limit man-made climate change. The EU and Norway have adopted comprehensive measures to realise this goal. Norway has committed itself to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent by the year 2030, compared to 1990. 

Transferring freight from road to sea and rail is one of the necessary measures to achieve emission targets and reduce heavy traffic and risks of road accidents. Larvik Havn aims to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, while creating value and growth, locally and regionally.
