OECD identifies economic threats Norway; oil is one of them

Wednesday, 13 Aug 2014

This May, the OECD (The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) states that the Norwegian economy will generally be good in the coming years, but points out two risk factors that may threaten the expected development: The price of oil and the real estate market.

This is another reason why divesting in fossil fuel is increasingly important. It is a tremendous risk for our planet and therefore a big risk for investors. Awareness as well as action are moving in the right direction, thanks to many initiatives world wide. The past months, The Norwegian National Committee for Research Ethics in Science and Technology (NENT) sparked the debate at various Norwegian Universities about whether petroleum research is defensible from the point of view of research ethics.
