OSLO (Reuters) – Norway’s greenhouse gas emissions fell by 2.2 percent in 2008, led by a decline in manufacturing industry, but were still far above goals under the U.N.’s Kyoto Protocol, Statistics Norway said on Tuesday.

Emissions fell to the equivalent of 53.8 million metric tons of carbon dioxide from 55.1 million in 2007, it said.

Overall gross domestic product growth slowed in 2008 to 2.1 percent from 3.1 percent the year before.
