Swedes believe they made the EU greener
Swedes believe that EU membership has been good for trade and enterprise, and think Brussels has also benefited from them - respondents in a new survey largely took credit for helping make the union more environmentally friendly.
A new opinion poll ordered by the lobby organisation the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise shows that 50 percent believe Sweden has pushed the EU to be more green.
Far fewer of the 1,000 respondents had the same to say about influencing labour market policy. Little more than 22 percent thought Sweden had contributed to better decision making in that field.
Sweden joined the European Union in 1994 but is not a member of the single currency zone.
The majority of survey respondents also thought membership had given Swedes more opportunity to study and work in their European neighbour nations.
