Society for Nature Conservation:

“Government Hollows out Environment Goals”

Published måndag 7 september 2009 kl 18.01
Environment Minister Andreas Carlgren

The head of the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation, Mikael Karlsson, has criticized the centre-right government for hollowing out the environment goals set by the European Union. Speaking to Swedish news agency TT, Karlsson accused the government of taking wrong decisions at the environmental sector – such as allowing farmers to use toxic fertilizers which according to Karlsson pose a threat to biological diversity.

Karlsson’s criticism comes on the very day Sweden as the current EU president is holding a high-level meeting on biodiversity in Strömstad.

Minister for Environmental Affairs Andreas Carlgren rejected the accusations as unfair. The government was trying to support farmers by abolishing the law forbidding certain fertilizers, Carlsson was quoted as saying.
