The City of Oslo must make significant cuts in CO2 emissions by 2030, and utility transport must take its share of the emission cuts needed. The Climate Agency has asked the Institute of Transport Economics to analyse traffic data and calculate emissions based on data reported in the national “Survey on road goods transport by Norwegian lorries”. We have only included trips that start and/or end in Oslo. "Soil, rocks and gravel, peat and clay" constitute the category with the most tonnes transported, but the trips are short and the emissions are therefore not very high compared to other categories. "Materials and equipment", on the other hand, is a category that has more kilometres driven and thus higher emissions. In total, we have calculated that “Construction activities” contributes with 19% of CO2 emissions related to the lorry transport of goods within the municipality of Oslo.
