  • The outlook for Sweden to achieve its climate goals looks better now than it did a year ago, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

  • Sara Almqvist, a climate analyst for the agency, tells Swedish Radio News that progress is being made compared to a year ago.

  • Last year, the forecast was that in the year 2045, Sweden's emissions would be 38 million tons of carbon dioxide. But this year's forecast has shaved 12 million tons off of that amount.
