Environmental impact from Norges Bank’s operations
Norges Bank’s direct climate and environmental impact is primarily related to normal office operations and official travel.
Norges Bank is a certified Eco-lighthouse. The certification applies to the operation of the head office at Bankplassen 2 and provides access to tools for measuring and improving the organisation’s environmental performance.
The certification applies to the Bank’s work in the areas of working environment, waste management, energy use, procurement and transport, and includes numerical targets and measures for reducing the environmental impact of the head office.
Norges Bank strives continuously to find more environmentally friendly ways of operating. The most important ongoing emission reduction measures are the continued use of video conferencing in lieu of official air travel, the replacement of ventilation generators and other technical installations with more energy-efficient versions and expanded environmental requirements for all relevant procurement.
