OSLO (Reuters) – Oil major Equinor aims to cut greenhouse gas emissions generated at its offshore fields and onshore plants in its native Norway by about 40% in the coming decade, the company said in a statement on Monday.

Equinor and its partners plan to invest around 50 billion Norwegian crowns ($5.7 billion) by 2030 to cut emissions to an annual rate of around 8 million tonnes from 13 million tonnes in 2018, the company said.

By 2050, the emissions generated from operations should approach zero, it said.
