NORWAY BANS HIGH DEFORESTATION RISK BIOFUELS IN "VICTORY FOR THE RAINFOREST"
Norway will become the first country to ban biofuels such as palm oil, which have a high deforestation risk.
The ban will come in to force in 2020.
Rainforest Foundation Norway called it a victory for the fight against climate change.
Nils Hermann Ranum from the group said: "The Norwegian parliament’s decision sets an important example to other countries and underlines the need for a serious reform of the world’s palm oil industry."
It will be introduced from 1 January 2020.
