OECD Report Card
The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development has praised Sweden for being a leader in national and international environmental policy but says there is still room for improvement.
The report shows that Sweden has gone above and beyond many OECD recommendations. For example with the Green Tax Shift, under which tax increases on energy and pollutants are to offset lowered income taxes.
But there are areas in which Sweden can do better, notably this country’s lack of a national strategy for caring and tending to marine areas in the Baltic Sea.
