The EU's line at the meeting will be a 40 percent reduction of greenhouse gases over the next 15 years. It is not a goal, which if adopted universally, would restrict global warming to the crucial two degrees of global increase that climate scientists say would produce undesirable but more predictable changes in the biosphere.
Sweden has previously demanded stronger measures, but it is now supporting the EU's line.
"The EU's goal for 2030 is at least a 40 percent reduction. Seen internationally, that's ambitious. But seen from the perspective of science, the EU, like other countries, will have to increase its future climate work. We know that," said Romson to Swedish Radio.
This week as part of its fall budget stump, the government announced that it would spend SEK 4.5 billion for its own climate work. The government has set a goal to reduce the country's domestic greenhouse gases by 40 percent before 2020.
