Decades of trade and commercial cooperation have been mutually beneficial to Norway and the United States in industries such as energy, clean technology, defense and the maritime sector. 

Both nations have set ambitious climate goals, agreeing to cut emissions in half by 2030. Industry will play a crucial role in reaching that goal, while at the same time creating well-paying jobs and sustainable growth. American and Norwegian business and innovation communities are leading the development of the clean technology needed, such as offshore wind, zero-emission transportation and Carbon Capture and Storage. 

This year’s Norway Means Business will gather prominent leaders and experts to explore the opportunities for our two countries and industries to work together as true partners in creating sustainable jobs and growth.
