Abstract
This article studies features of increase of energy efficiency of national economy and reduction of emissions of carbon dioxide for the subarctic countries such as Russia, Canada and Norway. For these countries we define the conditions to achieve sustainable development of indicators of energy intensity and carbon intensity of GDP. Focusing on the dynamics of energy intensity and carbon intensity of GDP, carbon intensity of energy production, in this article the real movement towards the implementation of the program of international organizations for the transition of the economy to a sustainable model of development is analyzed. The examples illustrate both the presence of significant differences between the three countries and the absence of fatality of these differences. In determining the regularities in the article the preference was given to linear models vs non-linear, with the reasons in each case. Greater attention to the progress of these countries may help to understand better the benefits of the transition to sustainable development model and to reduce the demands concerning expanses for such a transition.
