Commerce sector emissions decreasing efficiently, but not enough to achieve carbon neutrality by 2035

According to the carbon index for commerce, the sector’s greenhouse gas emissions decreased by eight per cent in 2020. The positive development reflects the ambitious work by companies in the sector but, according to the carbon index, the current rate of emission reduction is not sufficient to achieve carbon neutrality by 2035. Increasing the use of electricity, promoted by a lowered electricity tax rate for the service sector is a prerequisite for carbon-neutrality in the commerce sector.
