Sweden cutting carbon emissions too slowly
Sweden's carbon emissions are still declining but at a slower pace, according to annual statistics from the Environment Protection Agency.
The total emission of greenhouse gases in 2015 was 53.4 million tons, writes newspaper Dagens Nyheter, which has seen the Agency's annual report due to be released on Monday.
Sweden's emissions have declined since 1990 by 25 percent, but compared to 2014, emissions are only one percent lower for 2015.
Both private individuals and industry are singled out as responsible for the slower rate of decline.
Swedish emissions of greenhouse gases are reported every year to the UN and the EU.
