The Swedish EPA will develop a roadmap to Sweden without a net greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Several authorities are involved in the work and it will be based on dialogue and interaction with society as a whole. The initial task was decided in July by the Swedish Government.
– Now the government is based upon the ambitious climate change policies and strategies and concrete proposals to create a Sweden without climate emissions by 2050. The roadmap should be used as leverage to create new businesses and jobs throughout the country. It is necessary for Sweden to compete in the new green markets that are emerging internationally, said Mr Andreas Carlgren the Minister of Environment.
The roadmap should be completed by 1 December 2012.
