The Climate Budget 2023 is the seventh in the series of climate budgets. The methods used for the assessments in the Climate Budget are improved and developed continually, and there is an ongoing need to update and improve the underlying knowledge base.

This appendix elaborates on the details behind the Climate Budget 2023, as described in Proposition 1/2023, the City Council’s proposed budget for 2023 and the economic plan 2023-2026. These documents should therefore be read in context.

The appendix describes the establishment of the emission limits, use of the baseline trajectory, choice of methods and analysis for calculating climate effects and potential, and the need for further reductions in emissions in order to achieve the emission reduction targets for Oslo. Co-benefits that the measures in the climate budget contribute to are also briefly described.
