  • Sweden is not on track to meet its climate targets of net-zero carbon emissions by 2045, according to the Climate Policy Council.

  • "Most political parties lack comprehensive climate policy plans, showing how they would prefer to set us on the path to reaching this goal," says Åsa Persson of the international research organisation Stockholm Environment Institute.
  • The biggest carbon emissions in Sweden come from the transport and industry, but Sweden also needs to address the emissions from consumption, says Åsa Persson.
