Towards green growth

Sweden is a forerunner in eco-innovation and in environmental taxation. This chapter assesses Sweden’s environmental tax system since the “green tax shift” triggered by the 2001 reform. It discusses how the country could remove environmentally perverse incentives in the energy and transport sectors. It also examines the subsidies designed to encourage investment in the environment and the promotion of eco-innovation. Finally, Sweden’s efforts to mainstream the environment in development co-operation programmes are reviewed.
