As Vice Mayor for Finance, Robert Steen is in charge of Oslo’s Climate Budget. By counting carbon dioxide the same way as counting money, the city of Oslo aims to halve carbon emissions in a timespan of four years. City strategic planning, statistics, and populations forecasting are other areas of his responsibility.
Steen is currently focusing on how to make Oslo’s procurements as green as possible. Before entering politics, Steen held several senior positions in the Schibsted Media Group and led the international efforts of Schibsted Classified Media in both Europe and Asia.
