Sweden Ahead of EU Carbon Goals

Sweden has announced plans to cut carbon emissions by 30 percent by 2020, significantly bettering an EU agreement to reduce greenhouse gases by 20 percent.

”Sweden and the present government have been pushing for the 30 percent target in the EU,” Sweden’s Environment Minister Andreas Carlgren told the daily ”Svenska Dagbladet”.

He added the government would introduce plans to parliament for 30 percent reductions in carbon emissions by 2020 in the autumn.
