English Swedish, French



This third OECD Environmental Performance Review confirms that Sweden remains a front-runner in environmental policy and has developed approaches that will be of interest to other countries. However, the report highlights that Sweden will have to step up its efforts if it is to achieve its ambitious environmental targets, including the goal of zero net greenhouse gas emissions by the second half of the century. The burden of achieving these objectives will also have to be more equitably shared to maintain the necessary high level of public support.
